Some of the best wine you'll have out of Amador County made by H Keplinger! Head out to Destinations Wine Bar in Fairview to have some - limited stock! This is a Cote Rotie spin on Petite Sirah... nuff said.

Well, that’s sensational. 60 second mouthwatering finish.

1.5L we let breathe for 4 hours. Medium body with lots of pepper (mellowed over the night) and tobacco. Clean finish. Drinking great now but needed more air. Awesome wine!

This is a great #wine in so many ways. Color is very well balanced and gradient shows Harmony throughout the glass. Glowing color and polished sheen. Slight perfume, elegance and soft lavender aromas with a hint of passion fruit or fuzzy fruit.

The palate is incredibly soft and pillowy. The tannins are amazing for 2013
#PetiteSirah. Whether it be 4% Viognier, or over sized oak barrels, it has amazing texture. The plush, grapey, soft berries, gentle tannin and mild acidity make the wine. Opened 12/18/15

Gorgeous black fruited and floral nose. Huge and tannic on palate with nice black fruit extract on finish.

Forceful in it's youth, yet remains some of the best Petite Sirah I've tasted.
