KEPLINGER 2011 PROPRIETARY RED "CALDERA" EL DORADO COUNTY 750mL

Since graduating from U.C. Davis, Helen Keplinger has honed in on her winemaking abilities by working with some of the best in the industry, including Heidi Barrett, Kathy Joseph, and David Abreu!

The 2011 Caldera is all about aromatics and finesse. This El Dorado County vineyard at an elevation of 2700 has beautiful fine red volcanic soil strewn with lava pebbles, which always gives this wine a true sense of identity. The head-trained vines are now 16 years old, allowing the vineyard to be nearly dry-farmed, and giving the wine an even greater sense of terroir every year.

A blend of 62% Mourvedre, 34% Grenache, and 4% Counoise, this sings with herb-roasted meat, red earth, wild strawberry, cardamom, black licorice, and carnations. The palate is layered and mouth-filling, with dried thyme, cured meats, rust, clove, red berries, and black plum. The tannins are soft and silky; the finish ethereal. Only 150 cases produced!
