2010 Keplinger Lithic Amador

Double decanted just before service. Dark red at the core with faint translucence at rim. Deep cherry nose. Lush, intense fruit but somewhat refined. Cherries, blueberries. Stright cherry on the mid-palate. Tannins need to soften a bit, but not bothersome. Bright acidity, great balance. Finishes long and dark fruited. Quite nice now, but I'd like a bit more complexity on the palate. Give it 3 to 5 years, there's plenty of fruit there to wait on. 44% Grenache; 31% Mourvèdre; 25% Syrah. "A-"

First post was in error: Wrong note for this wine. Apologies.
