2012 Epoch Estate Wines Estate Blend

Paso Robles Red Rhone Blend more

2/10/2016 - Redguy wrote: NR

Drank relatively well after a short decant, though the acid rode on top of the fruit and the alcohol poked out a little. Full, ripe, round, and rich, as is the house style, with loads of deliciously ripe red and black fruits and touches of leafy herbaceousness and spice. A relative "lightweight" from an Epoch lineup which has mostly become too sweet and portish for my preference, but this purple teddy bear of a wine is easy to like.

This was the "opening" wine of a night dedicated to syrahs/shirazs. We opted to start with this wine because it was a blend. All of the others were 100% syrah. Decanted for 2+ hours. We really enjoyed this wine! The nose was full of fruit and almost no alcohol. I like that. The color was solid in the glass - by that I mean it was not opaque. Wonderful flavors of dark berries and raspberries, with just a little tang on the finish. I have to agree with the notes from "MRMEDOES" and say that I prefer Epoch's "Ingenuity" to this wine, but this one is damn good! This one is easily drinkable now!

FWIW... Of the other bottles for night, a 2003 St Jakobi shiraz from Australia and a 2009 Colson Canyon syrah from Joey Tensley were the standouts for me!

Very dark red. Spicy redolence. Very, very fruit forward, with lots of ripeness. Tannin still jostling for dominance. Lurking acidity. Very young and rambunctious bottle--give this wine a couple of years to settle down.

Dark purple and inky. Nose was somewhat overpowered by the alcohol day one, but subsequent days was able to pick up cherry and raspberry notes. Dark berry and plumb flavors with a nice smooth finish. Medium bodied with mouth drying tannins. May mellow out more with another year or two, but drinking well now with great balance. Alcohol/heat just a tad higher than what I would consider perfectly balanced right now.

I gave this an 89 a couple of years ago. The basic notes are the same, but the integration is better and the finish is better with less heat and burn.

This is a massive wine. Dark and inky. Stains the glass. While I don't often drink this style of wine, I think it is a great example of a big paso syrah. Fruit forward and high alcohol, a nice treat on a cold winter day. 8 years old now, and doesn't seem to be fading at all.

2010 Epoch Estate Wines Tempranillo Paderewski Vineyard

Very dense with pure fruit. It doesn't exhibit the earth or herbs of wines from Ribera del Duero, but delivers big on the fruit and tobacco. In balance. This is a very enjoyable tempranillo but quite distinct from the traditional old-world ones.

Decanted for 2+ hours. I do this with all Epochs because I find many of them need to blow off a little alcohol and that they become so much more layered and seamless around the 2-hour mark.

What in the world happened to this wine since I tasted it almost 2 years ago? Last time I had this it was muted with too much oak and little fruit and I wondered if it was ever going to come back. Boy did it ever. This is what Epoch is all about. Full throttled but not over done with just a kiss of oak still and a mouth coating texture that was just surreal. The fruit was big and bold with just a hint of spice. This is what I expected from this wine when I first tasted it at the tasting room a few years ago. This is great now but should last for another solid 3-5 years with no worries.

Agree with recent notes. Time did wonders for this wine. Nice nose - some baking spice, pepper, blue and black fruits. Velvet in the mouth with nice smooth tannins to finish. Not a wow wine, but very nice...

As soon as I popped the cork I started to drool from the amazing aromas pouring out of the bottle. Decanted for about an hour and enjoyed with Ribeye dinner at Ember Restrauant. What a treat.

A great big Paso Zin. Drinking perfectly right now. No need to age any longer.

Served at 67 degrees. Poured into a decanter so that it could open fully.

Decanted. Big zin, lots of fruit, sweet. Not my cup of tea - I'm more of a Ridge, Bedrock, or Carlisle guy. Also, this is way overpriced in my opinion. GOOD.
