The 2016 Revelation checks in as a blend of 56% Grenache and 44% Syrah that spent 20 months in 40% new French oak. Deep purple/ruby-colored, with notes of black raspberries, spiced plums, smoked game, crushed flowers, and peppery herbs, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, plenty of upfront fruit, no hard edges, and terrific purity. It's certainly the finest vintage of this cuvée I've tasted.

Dark black-currant and gingerbread spice aromas show on the nose of this single-vineyard blend of 56% Grenache and 44% Syrah. It's rich and unctuous on the palate, with cassis and violet flavors. It is attention-grabbing yet also balanced by acidity and a subtle structure.
The 2016 vintage of this classic Rhône blend is 56% Grenache and 44% Syrah. Grenache adds red fruit flavors and complementary spice while Syrah brings balance and contributes to the depth of this wine's opaque purple color.
This versatile blend can be paired with roast meats, hearty game, mature cheese or dishes with spice.
Founded by Eli Parker at the turn of the last century, Epiphany was at first intended as a creative outlet for the then adventurous winemaking son of Fess Parker. As the years progressed, Eli assumed the role of Brand Visionary, paving the way for winemaker Blair Fox to assume the enological reins at the winery. The Epiphany portfolio has become a highly coveted selection of mostly Santa Barbara County- designated Rhone-inspired wines, considered by leading critics to be a flagship producer from this vibrant growing region.
Epiphany has transformed into a leading, contemporary producer of Rhone-based and esoteric varietal wines from the Central Coast, and a meaningful representation of the second generation of the Parker family name, and their continued dedication to ultra-premium wine production on the Central Coast.
Sought after by chefs, sommeliers, retail buyers and consumers alike, the Epiphany brand has distinguished itself among the wine cognoscenti as a trustworthy, quality-oriented and forward-thinking wine brand.
