About 88% Grenache with rest Syrah. Very open and accessible. Ripe bright red fruit with a bit of licorice and tannin on the finish. Tastes like a ripe cdp but other flavors and acid give it balance. More open than the recent 2012 keplinger wines I've had in the last few months.

Just loved it. Close your eyes and it rivals the best CdP's. Really nice work Helen K.

Drunk before it's time. That having been said this is #rhone on roids. Big and juice, lots of structure, lots of jam. #thatlldo

Double decant (min cloudy sediment). A bewildering dark ruby red. On the nose: floral, cinnamon, red fruit, green veggie. Taste: blueberry, vanilla, spice, orange peel...medium finish for this Califonia Rhone valley.
