Keplinger 2014 Vermillion Red Blend
Rhone-Style Red: 55% Grenache, 22% Mourvedre, 18% Syrah, and 5% Petite Sirah.
Amador and Sonoma County fruit. Keplinger Winery’s 2nd label, “leftover” blend. (It’s so good, you can only imagine what the first-cut wines are like.) Dense, liqueur-like ripeness. Blackberries, black cherries and boysenberries. Black pepper, cardamom, licorice, ginger and coriander notes. Drinking terrific in its vibrant youth.
Co-Owner DJ Warner: "The label represents one of the many hues of Vermillion, dissolving out of the letters - a hand painted label replicated in label format. Cinnabar and the hues are historical and part of the story that relates to the varying hues of Rhone grapes in the blend."
