A powerful, explosive wine, Helen Keplinger's 2014 Lithic boasts notable power, yet all of that intensity has been achieved while maintaining a considerable amount of energy and delineation. These are without question the finest wines I have tasted from Helen Keplinger. The 2013s and 2014s are simply captivating across the board. Over the years, Keplinger has refined her approach, which includes a greater reliance on large format oak as well as important investments in equipment. The result of those significant sacrifices are very much in evidence. Readers will find a few new wines in the range, all of them welcome additions. As good as the 2013s are, the 2014s have the potential to be even more compelling. I can' t say enough good things about these wines and the daring spirit they embody. (AG)
Deeply structured and rich in character without giving up elegance. Bold aromas of smoky meat, crushed rock and blackberry open to layered flavors of licorice, black olive and cracked pepper that linger toward firm yet ripe tannins. Mourvèdre, Grenache and Syrah. Best from 2018 through 2028. (TF)
