2021 EPIC RESERVE
Epic Reserve is a rich blend of Finger Lakes Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. While fermenting, we "rack and return" the wines -- called délestage in French -- to increase oxygenation and improve extraction of color, flavor, and tannin. The result is a wine of distinction and depth with ripe berry notes that pairs beautifully with juicy meats like steaks, pork roasts, or chops, pasta with white or red sauces, and other hearty dishes. Serve at cool room temperature (60-65º F). Bring a bottle to dinner with friends!
- 92 pts., James Suckling "A pretty nose of strawberries, rose petal and grated nutmeg. Medium-bodied with silky tannins. The nose follows through to the palate. Rather elegant and refined. Drink now."
- 91 pts., Wine Enthusiast Magazine "...A vibrant pale cherry color, it smells like roses and wild strawberries on a cool, dewy morning, white pepper with a little mint. The featherlight palate is tugged by chalky tannins and a purity of crunchy red-fruited freshness. Drink slightly chilled on warm day." -CP
