Keplinger Lithic 2016
41% Grenache, 32% Mourvèdre, 7% Syrah from high-elevation Shake Ridge vineyard in Sierra Foothills. Fermentation is 20-30% whole cluster for a smooth, fresh texture, and then the wine is aged in 25% new oak. A very attractive nose of wild flowers, dried herbs, pepper, licorice, raspberries, and blackberries leads on to a palate full of crunchy fruits and with firm, structured tannins and a long, full finish.
