2017 Epoch Estate Blend Willow Creek, Paso Robles
MY BIO BY WINEMAKER JORDAN FIORENTINI
This wine is so integrated, even from an early age, that you will never guess it is a blend of five different varieties off of our Paderewski and Catapult Vineyards. The entry is full and lush leading to an über long and velvety midpalate which encircles the mouth. While we revel in its plushness, it never feels too heavy or thick as the cohesive acid weaves its way through the sensations of black licorice, black cherry and raspberry, grilled meats and herbs, candied lavender, rose oil, warm underbrush, and vanilla bean.
Wine Enthusiast - "There's incredible depth to this Rhône-forward blend, starting with aromas of dark boysenberry jam wrapped in pie crust, lavender-like flowers and the slightly nutty hint of charred chicken fat. Tannins leap out at first and then smooth into the palate soothingly, carrying dark-cherry, roasted berry and baking-spice flavors as well as a refreshing acidity."
