Epoch 2014 Tempranillo
Whether you are Tempranillo fan or not, this Spaniard will have you by the heartstrings. Epoch’s 2014 Tempranillo is so well rounded, so delicious while still staying true to the flavors and textures of the Tempranillo grape. A consistent round of tannins stuff the mouth and keep the wine turning from front to back, filling your palate with dried cherries, red plum, Christmas and barrel spices, smoked and cured meats and sweet tobacco. Minerality and bright acidity keep the wine from ever seeming too overpowering. Big tannin in balance seems like an oxymoron but not in this bottle!
