Another great vintage of this wine. I’m amazed at the year to year consistency. Fantastic flavors of raspberry and strawberry, baking spice, great tannins and acidity - food friendly but not required. Crowd pleasing, pop and pour goodness.

Beautiful wine. Some call it her "second label" and I think I recall Helen saying something along the line of her utilizing extra/leftover juices to create a bit of a "kitchen sink" wine. While hard to find under $35, I did score a case @ $25 each and am so glad I did. An "artisanal red wine blend" that shouldn't be missed.

I’ve had the 2015 of this a few times and it is evolving nicely. Dense, a little wild, red fruit and underbrush. Noteworthy structure and complexity.

The 2nd label of the highly allocated Keplinger Wines, this southern Rhône blend delivers. Plum, raspberry, blackberry jam, and baking spice. Palate is warm and round, with velvety tannins. Smooth but also has the depth. Love the label.
