EPOCH ESTATE WINES Syrah, Paderewski Vineyard 'Block B' 2012

Epoch has crafted a heavyhitter of a Syrah here with their Paderewski Vineyard 'Block B' Syrah. Utilizing clone 174, the wine was aged 18 months in 44% new French oak barrels prior to bottling. This dense wine opens with aromatics of milk chocolate, crème de cassis, allspice, white pepper all taking shape around boysenberry jam. On the palate this full-bodied and multi-layerd, offering deep, concentrated flavors of wild blackberry preserves, black cherry compote, roasted figs, creosote, anise and mocha. While this intense syrah is not for the weary, it delivers an gorgeous velvery texture and opulent mouthfeel, which is absolutely impossible to resist. This is a decadent treat, needing at least a two hour decant for it to show its best. (Best 2016-2028) - May, 2016 (OB)
