2011 Epoch "Veracity" Paderewski Vineyard Paso Robles Rhone Blend

SKU #1146502 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Remarkably inky in color for a Grenache-based blend, it features strong aromas of cedar, meat and deeply purple fruit. The soft, rich mouthfeel coats the palate like a luxurious lacquer, and features flavors of blackberry jam, macerated cherry and vanilla-spiced plums. The blend of florals, herbals, fruit and oak-driven tannins is masterful. Drink now by itself or with a peppercorn-crusted filet mignon. Inner quote mark (9/2014)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Savory and meaty, with plenty of black cherry, raspberry, underbrush and spice, the 2011 Veracity has a great palate that carries pure, vibrant fruit, ripe tannin and an overall elegant, focused feel. Give it another 2-3 years in the cellar and enjoy through 2021. Drink 2015-2021. An estate that continues to go from strength to strength, Epoch is owned by Bill and Liz Armstrong, with the wines made by Jordan Fiorentini. All of their wines come from their estate Paderewski Vineyard, and both their 2010s and 2011s are incredibly strong, with the edge going to the 2010s at the moment. You can’t go wrong here, though, and these are serious, top-flight wines. (JD) Inner quote mark (8/2013)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark (57% grenache, 25% mourvedre and 18% syrah; 25% new French oak and 15.9% alcohol): Brilliant ruby. Powerful aromas of candied black raspberry, blueberry and licorice, with hints of violet and cracked pepper adding complexity. Lush, intensely flavored and silky in texture, offering spicy dark berry and cherry compote flavors enlivened by a suave floral nuance. Showing the dark side of grenache. Finishes sappy and very long, with resonating spiciness, a hint of licorice and velvety, harmonious tannins. (JR) Inner quote mark (12/2013)
