Notes about the Wine:
The pinnacle wine for Terlato Vineyards, EPISODE stands shoulder to shoulder with the very best Bordeaux Blends in the world. The Terlato family makes this botique Bordeaux blend of classic varietals from the best Napa Valley fruit. The 2010 vintage stands out as one of Napa Valley’s top vintages. A late bud break and cool summer allowed for a long, slow ripening, which offers a beautiful balance of acidity, ripeness and complexity.

Tasting Notes:
Intense aromas of boysenberry, blueberry and cassis with a hint of vanilla, nutmeg and caramel. Beautiful flavor intensity, with rich layers of black fruits and dark chocolate. This wine is mouthfilling and robust, with silky tannins further enhancing the wine's complex expression. Great structure and depth.

Ratings & Reviews



94 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"Terlato has mastered the art of crafting Bordeaux-style red wines that scream Napa Valley. The style is the modern one of exceptional ripeness, softness and sweetness, generously oaked and slightly high in alcohol. Here, you'll find deep flavors of blackberries, mocha, black currants, olives and toast. It's ready to drink now, and should develop in the bottle for at least 10 more years." (Dec 2013)

90 Points - Wine Spectator:
"Dense and powerful, rustic and tannic, offering a core of dark berry, mocha, cedar and tobacco, marked by chewy, grainy tannins that give the flavors traction. Needs time. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2015 through 2028. 1,000 cases made." –JL (Apr 2014)
