EPOCH 2012 PROPRIETARY RED "VERACITY" PASO ROBLES 750mL

Made by the talented winemaker Jordan Fiorentini, and consulting winemaker Justin Smith (of Saxum fame). Justin was also intrumental in the development of these vineyards, which are planted on the Westside of Paso Robles! Epoch's Paderewski Vineyard is a patchwork of different vineyard blocks matched to their specific soil and climate types. The 2012 Veracity Blend captures that patchwork in a bottle, with this year's blend being 55% Grenache, 27% Mourvèdre, and 18% Syrah.

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 94 POINTS - "I was blown away by these 2011s from winemaker Jordan Fiorentini, and they showed uncommon depth and richness in the vintage. For the most part, they're ready to go, yet should evolve gracefully. Moving on to the reds and starting with the 2011s, these showed beautifully from barrel, and didn't disappoint from bottle. They're up there with the creme de la creme of the vintage. The 2012s are tighter, with a chewier, savory tannin profile that will be something to watch. They'll need a year or two in the cellar once released.

A blend of 55% Grenache, 27% Mourvedre and 18% Syrah, the 2012 Veracity is a sweetly fruited, sexy and seamless red that has plenty of black raspberry, raspberry, licorice, crushed rock and toasted spice on the nose. As with all of Jordan's 2012s, it's made in a full-bodied, lightly textured and savory style, with plenty of chewy tannin (which is common in her 2012s) on the finish. It will improve with another year in bottle and have over a decade of longevity."
