About The Wine

 

2015 Block B begs for patience in the cellar. A willingness to decant or enjoy over three days will pay off in this intricate, serious and less muscly expression of Epoch's single block Syrah bottling.

 

Elegance abounds revealing alternating high and base notes: violets, huckleberries, dried herbs, and vanillin oscillate with meaty, earthy, black olive and black licorice flavors. Polished tannins, balanced acidity and minerals captivate every sip.

 

Fermented in 100% new ½ tonne French oak puncheons. Aged 19 months in French oak barrels and puncheons (75% new) , it was bottled in June 2017.

  • "The 2015 Block B comes all from block 13 of the estate Paderewski Vineyard and is all Syrah that spent 19 months in 75% new French oak. I wrote “awesome” more than once in my notes and this deep, backward, almost primordial Syrah sports an inky purple color, sensational notes of black fruits, charred earth, iodine, graphite, and beef blood, full body, and a layered, balanced, seamless texture. It’s another wine that’s up with the crème de la crème of the vintage. Give bottles 1-3 years and it should cruise for a decade.”
