Since the inaugural release in 2001 to the current release of the exceptional 2013 vintage, EPISODE, our classic Bordeaux style blend has exceeded expectations, consistently receiving scores in excess of 90 points. An opulent special occasion wine, inspired by Tony Terlato’s quest to showcase the very best Napa Valley fruit that has been barrel aged to perfection in 100% new French oak, EPISODE is the epitome of Napa Valley meets Bordeaux.
“Terlato has mastered the art of crafting Bordeaux-style red wines that scream Napa Valley”.
- Steve Heimoff
The 2013 vintage is crimson in color with aromas of boysenberry, cassis and plum; highlighted by hints of vanilla and nutmeg. The tannins, while seamless, are silky with flavors of dark fruit-boysenberry and cocoa accents. The wine is aged 21 months in 100% new French oak barrels, then 14 months aging in the bottle before release.
