Winemaker Notes

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 Bordeaux blend of classic varietals from the best Napa Valley fruit. Made with a focus on quality from select fruit that meets the highest standards, Episode stands out as truly elegant wine—a classic.

The wine is a deep ruby color, with dark brooding fruit and layers of anise and dark chocolate. On the palate, it is rich, with a velvety structure and incredible lingering finish.

Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
Terlato’s focus on Bordeaux-style red wines has paid off in the last several vintages, and this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot continues the success streak. It has ripe, spicy flavors of blackberry jam, black currant and sweet, toasty oak, and the tannin-acid structure is balanced. Still, it’s an astringent wine that needs time in the cellar, so give it at least eight years. It could age well beyond that.

For Terlato Wine Group Chairman Anthony J. Terlato, one of life's richest luxuries is orchestrating a well-prepared meal for his close friends; cooking together, laughing and talking about things they enjoy in common, and, of course, choosing a wine that will get their attention.

This ideal was Terlato's inspiration for Episode, a wine that would stand alongside the best he had tasted during his 50 years in the luxury wine business; a wine that he would proudly serve at a luxurious dinner.

The result is EPISODE, a personal expression of a luxury wine. The Terlato family personally selects 1 1/2 acres from their 600+ acre holdings in Napa Valley and produces 400 cases of a wine with power, finesse, elegance and longevity.

EPISODE is a blend of the classic Bordeaux grapes, grown from the very best Napa Valley fruit including Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Anthony Terlato and Doug Fletcher, who oversees all aspects of winemaking at the Terlato properties, taste numerous blends selecting the precise combination for each vintage.

EPISODE meets the very highest standards of the family providing oenophiles and collectors with a wine to be treasured.

Napa Valley

Red Wine

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
