EPOCH ESTATE WINES 'Authenticity' 2012

The 2012 'Authenticity' is an incredible blend of 71% Syrah, 28% Mouvedre and 1% Viognier that was aged for 18 months in 51% new French oak barrels prior to bottling. This majestic, towering red opens with intense aromatics of star jasmine, anise, crème de cassis, and Turkish coffee which explode from the glass. This is full-bodied, layered and the texture is absolutely gorgeous, bordering ethereal, as it continues to deliver intense flavors of milk chocolate, crème de cassis, roasted figs, and tar which resonate through the wine. Despite its profound weight, this has a wonderful sense of freshness and seamless quality leading into the long multi-tiered finish. Overall, this 2012 is fabulous effort from winemaker Jordan Fiorentini. (Best 2016-2030) - May, 2016 (OB)
