Fantastic new red from Helen Keplinger, dont miss.
This is a serious Rhone-style red with the complexity and palate to show for it. Keplinger Winery’s 2nd label, “leftover” blend (It’s so good, you can only imagine what the first-cut wines are like.) The nose gives off beautiful layers of wild strawberry, black licorice and graphite followed by insane flavors of red and black fruit, dried herbs, and a red vine finish. This vintage is a blend of 55% Grenache, 22% Mourvedre, 18% Syrah, and 5% Petite Sirah. Only 400 cases produced.
