This stuff was absolutely amazing. Like, a baby SQN, and not near the price. Certified organic, and owned by two Dallas natives!

A blend of 2 great vineyards: Paderewksi (which is used in some of the Saxum wines), and Catapult.

54% Syrah, 21% Mourvedre, 16% Grenache, 9% Petit Sirah.

Yes yes yes. GSM from Paso. There are things that make you happy, and this is one of them. New world wine at its finest. Not a huge nose, but rich opulent mouthfeel, with coco and expresso and olive tapenade on the pallet mixed with black fruit. 20second finish leaves you wanting more and more.

Epoch Estate Wines previously York Mountain Winery which was founded by my wife’s family. This wine is beautiful. Complex full body. Smoke flavor does not over power the fruit. Nice long finish that sticks with you.

After two trips to Paso, I’ve visited quite a few wineries. Epoch is always top of my list. Great tasting experience at the winery and the wines are stellar.

Great sauce to help with Thanksgiving at the in laws 😃. Still too young but I couldn't wait to dip into my allocation. Berries on the nose and on the palate with a little sweetness. Would be great with a thick pork chop. Updated rating the next day - had a third of a bottle leftover - finished 24 hours later - was a fair bit better the next day so I can believe a few hours in a decanter would improve it. Blackberry, plum & raspberry on the nose, ripe plum taste.
