2013 Epoch "Ingenuity - Paderewski Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1345849 96 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The GSM blend from the estate is the 2013 Ingenuity Proprietary Red, which in 2013 is 54% Syrah, 21% Mourvedre, 16% Grenache and the balance Petite Sirah. It saw a touch of whole clusters in the fermentation and like the other 2013s here, spent 17 months in roughly 50% new French oak. This downright sexy, full-bodied and sweetly fruited beauty offers tons of black raspberry, plums, incense and peppery aromas and flavors, gorgeous tannin quality and a long, classy finish that keeps you coming back to the glass.

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark The winery's characteristic dense style is immediately apparent in this blend of 54% Syrah, 21% Mourvèdre, 16% Grenache and 9% Petite Sirah. It offers black licorice, smoked meat, baked black cherry and graphite aromas, needing time to breathe before unleashing black coffee, elderberry jam, asphalt and charcoal flavors through tarry tannins. *Cellar Selection* (MK) Inner quote mark (5/2017)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright purple. Intense blackberry and candied licorice aromas show excellent clarity and pick up a smoky nuance with air. Sweet and focused, showing strong mineral lift to the densely packed, appealingly sweet black and blue fruit and violet pastille flavors. Becomes more lively and spicy with air, picking up a suave star anise note that carries emphatically through a very long, youthfully tannic finish. While I've no doubt that this sexy wine will reward patience, it has a lot going on already. (JR) Inner quote mark (9/2016)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Potent, structured and jammed with character, offering aromas of blackberry, dark chocolate and licorice and rich, muscular flavors of blueberry and smoky cracked pepper. (TF) Inner quote mark (3/2017)
