If the fruit ripens just right, and the sweet pieces fall into place, there is a Possibility our vineyards will give us a treat. Like the dessert wine it is, sometimes it’s the perfect ending to a meal… or harvest.

MY BIO BY ASSOCIATE WINEMAKER PETER TURRONEDiscovering new possibilities is what Epoch is all about. When the Paso Robles heat of 2014 gave us some overly-ripe fruit, in the spirit of American innovation, we saw an opportunity to create a special new wine for our most loyal fans. This is not an ‘oops-wine’ resulting from a stuck fermentation as so many dessert wines tend to be. The intention to create this fortified beauty started in the vineyard with some extra hang time, and was carefully tended to all the way to bottle. It starts with an abundance of fruit on the nose including ripe bing cherry, black raspberry, and cranberry compote, backed by a generous helping of cinnamon, Christmas spice, and cocoa nibs. The finish is a sublime sensation of figgy pudding and crème brûlée. This sweet treat is sure to be a welcome addition to your family’s holiday celebration.
