April 15, 2019 - Packed with sweet dark fruit, anise and Asian spice. Plenty of structure and acidity to keep it going at least 5 more years. Alcohol well hidden for such a big wine.
December 29, 2018 - 76% Syrah and 24% Mourvedre. International Wine Report’s #1 Wine of the Year for 2013 and a well deserved recognition. Outstanding bottle of wine. In a good spot right now. Recommend to drink now, though if you want to hold should still have more life in it.
June 25, 2018 - Whoa, this is fantastic! 76% Syrah, 24% Mourvedre. Wild berry, black currant, and blackberry fruit. Great structure on this wine with a wonderful balance of flavors that include black licorice, smoked meat, earth, tobacco, and a smoky savory component on the end. Chewy tannins and a tremendously long finish. Great wine, the extra years of age have done this justice.
May 5, 2018 - Full bodied yet graceful, with blackberry and black currant, licorice and hints of grilled meat. Finishes with solid minerality.
April 14, 2018 - Nice blend of Syrah and Mourvedre. Drinking well with some air. These Epoch wines are very masculine cocktail wines with bold, pure notes and lots of alcohol and tannins. Good if you like the style.
December 1, 2017 - Chemical finish. Slightly corked?
October 30, 2017 - This may be the most powerful yet harmonious syrah I've tasted from Paso. I really enjoyed this with a peppery NY strip.
July 15, 2017 - I typically don't drink much wine from Paso but this syrah was wonderful. Its drink perfectly right now. Big fruit but not too ripe and while the alcohol is high, its very well integrated. Decanted for 3 hrs before drinking.
May 14, 2017 - Great wine, tasting fantastic now. Big fruit and finish. Lovely. Will try to wait to save the next bottle after a few years in the cellar.
March 31, 2017 - Big wine! Delicious! Very smooth tannins. Great fruit! Delicious!
