Epiphany Red Rhone Blend Santa Barbara County Gypsy 2006

Member Review by VegasOenophile:

Big, forward nose. Heavy on Grenache aromas with a rich, Chambord-like nose with licorice and liquer. Big flavors of black cherry and plum with spicy notes. Rich, pure fruit. Ripe red and black berries, maduro tobacco, leather and tea. Some dark soil notes. Very slight truffle. Bay leaf, light eucalyptus. Dark, nice and complexly layered. 92 pts. 3/16/13

Some people are fortunate enough to experience an event that serves to add direction and clarity in their life. For Eli Parker, this event was his family’s foray into the wine business in 1987, a move that would prove to be an important turning point in his professional life. Eli embarked on a journey which began with apprenticeships and associations with several critically acclaimed winemakers and, in the process, revealed his innate winemaking talent. Winemaking has truly been an epiphany for Eli. Eli Parker, Wine MakerEpiphany is a winemaker’s wine, one which satisfies Eli’s passion for and fascination with winemaking. Crafting interesting wines of exquisite quality is the sole reason for the conception of Epiphany. Epiphany’s foundation is built upon the outstanding grapes harvested from the best vineyards throughout Santa Barbara County and beyond. In most cases the Epiphany wines are made with grapes from a single vineyard source in order to accentuate the unique characteristics and terroir of that vineyard. Other Epiphany wines blend grapes from multiple vineyards in order to marry different flavor nuances thereby adding depth and complexity to the final wine. Read less

"Gypsy was created as a true Rhone-styled blend inspired by the great wines of the Southern Rhone Valley in France. The result is packed with black cherry
