Keplinger Lithic Amador Grenache/Syrah/Mourvedre 2010

Wine Spectator 93pts:

Offers a sturdy, muscular mix of dried dark berry, loamy earth, espresso, graphite and cedar. This full-bodied red shows excellent depth, ending with tannins that reveal a touch of leather. Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah. Best from 2013 through 2023. 195 cases made.

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar 93pts:

A blend of 44% grenache, 31% mourvedre and 25% syrah; grown on old, rocky volcanic soil at an altitude of 1,700 feet): Good dark, bright red. Complex, expressive nose offers blueberry, blackberry, licorice, cardamom and black pepper. Precise and vibrant, with dark fruit flavors perked up by pepper and an ineffable spice component. Very silky wine with terrific aromatic complexity. The slowly mounting finish features firm but fine-grained tannins that dust the teeth. A superb showing today.

Vinous 93pts:

The 2010 Lithic wraps around the palate with dark cherries, plums, new leather, cloves and menthol. Rich, powerful and intense, the 2010 shows off gorgeous depth and persistence. Portions of the Grenache and Syrah were fermented with whole clusters, but today it is the fruit and structure that are front and center. With time in the glass the wine's inner perfume emerges, adding lift and nuance. The blend is 44% Grenache, 31% Mourvedre and 25% Syrah, all from Shake Ridge Vineyard in Amador County. (11/2013)
