The lone wolf, Epoch's Tempranillo is so distinctly different from all our other wines in aroma, flavor and most obviously tannin structure. Big and juicy red plum and pomegranate fruits lead the entry as cinnamon and oak spice tumble around the palate, intensified by a cascade of chewy, multi-faceted tannins that fold from front to back. This wine resides at the intersection of rustic and refined and once again has earned his spurs to be deemed our Spanish cowboy.

Wine AdvocateChecking in at the top of the barrel sample, the 2013 Tempranillo (87% Tempranillo, 10% Grenache and 3% Zinfandel) is a structured, tannic, full-bodied and youthful red that has lots of darker berry fruits, crushed flowers, chocolate and savory spice aromas and flavors. I love its purity, but it needs 2-3 years of cellaring.
