Vermillion Wine (Helen Keplinger) Vermillion California Grenache Blend 2014

$35

Fantastic new red from Helen Keplinger, dont miss. This is a serious Rhone-style red with the complexity and palate to show for it. Keplinger Winery’s 2nd label, “leftover” blend (It’s so good, you can only imagine what the first-cut wines are like.) The nose gives off beautiful layers of wild strawberry, black licorice and graphite followed by insane flavors of red and black fruit, dried herbs, and a red vine finish. This vintage is a blend of 55% Grenache, 22% Mourvedre, 18% Syrah, and 5% Petite Sirah. Only 400 cases produced.

I really just love this wine. It’s always so reliable, delicious and guilt-free. Another Cali Rhone blend that works so well. Incredible fruit - almost compote-like, great balance, smooth texture, and super easy drinking - I can’t say enough good things about this wine. And at under 40 bucks and made by Helen Keplinger it’s a steal.

Fun fruit forward and youthful. Raspberry, blackberry, licorice with some prune on the finish.

This is nice! Didn't wow me but played nicely with the Blue Apron Korean beef steam buns. Nice red blend?

Had this last week at Appellation in Andersonville. Purchased two bottles to take home and keep... just couldn't resist! Still one more in the "cellar". So good!

Dark fruit and leather on the nose. Rich tastes of white chocolate, fig jam, licorice and earthiness on the palate. An excellent Rhone-style wine from Sonoma and Amador counties. Grenache is the dominate grape with a nice Mourvèdre and Syrah pairing. The second label for Keplinger but this wine rocks!
