KEPLINGER PETITE SIRAH "SUMO", SHAKE RIDGE RANCH, EL DORADO SIERRA FOOTHILLS 2016

Wine Advocate

94+ Points

The 2016 Sumo is blended of 93% Petite Sirah and 7% Viognier, aged 16 months in 66% new French oak. It is very deep purple-black in color and a little closed, revealing notes of crushed raspberries, black cherries and warm plums plus hints of wild blueberries, spice box and roses. The palate is full-bodied with a firm frame of very ripe, plush tannins and oodles of freshness lifting the red and black berry flavors to a long perfumed finish. 295 cases produced.

95 Points

The 2016 Sumo is another positively stunning wine from Helen Keplinger. Petite Sirah takes center stage in an inky, beautifully textured red that hits all the right notes. Here too, I am blown away by the purity and nuance Keplinger coaxes from her sites. The Sumo is heady and explosive, with tons of energy, with impeccable balance and a level of sheer allure that makes it absolutely irresistible, even in the early going. Drink 2021 - 2031. Antonio Galloni May 2019
