About The Wine

 

Epoch's nod to Châteauneuf-du-Pape, this Grenache-based blend embraces its status as a GSM (Grenache, Syrah, Mourvédre) with elegance, panache, and a consistent sunny-ness that reminds Owner, Bill Armstrong, of the wines from the Southern Rhône – wines that inspired him to start this crazy Epoch journey in the first place.

 

The 2014 Veracity was sourced from two of Paso's 'Grand Cru' vineyards, 52% Paderewski and 48% Catapault, both owned by Epoch.

 

It was fermented in concrete and stainless steel tanks, and large French oak puncheons. It was racked into and aged for 18 months, 8% in concrete eggs, and French oak barrels (24% new). It was bottled on 17th May 2016.

Status
  • "The GSM blend of the estate the checks in as 66% Grenache, 18% Mourvèdre and 16% Syrah (more Grenache than normal), the 2014 Veracity offers a classic Paso nose of sexy, ripe black fruits, melted licorice, charcoal and roasted meats. Deep, rich and concentrated, it cuts a tight, focused path on the palate, with plenty of tannin, terrific freshness and a great finish. Like all these 2014s, it has terrific purity.
