FREE SHIPPING on 6 ~ Use code KEP @ checkout ~ Mix & match OK with other Keplinger wines

This wine hails from the gorgeous Aiken soils of Goldbud Vineyard in El Dorado County at an elevation of 2900’. The beautiful, fine red volcanic soil is strewn with lava pebbles, giving this wine a true sense of place. The head-trained vines are now 19 years old, allowing the vineyard to be dry-farmed, and giving the wine more intensity and terroir every year. The 2015 Caldera - 65% Mourvedre, 31% Grenache, and 4% Counoise - has an incredibly dark, concentrated profile, with awesome tension of fruit and savory notes. The nose has great intensity and purity – rose petal, wild strawberry with a kirsch edge, dried aromatic herbs, blackberry, graphite, black tea, regaliz, and herb-roasted meat. This is a really stunning vintage of Caldera, with a super silky entry, terrific depth and length, and great tension between seductive fruit and pensive savory notes. 180 cases produced.
