85% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre whole cluster pressed (which suggests a more complex and delicate Rosé than the open-the-red-grape-juice spigot method, aka saignée). Sports a dark orange color (a la Provence Rosé but a darker hue), and smells and flavors of raspberry/strawberry, black olive, crushed thyme, blood orange, peach pit and lavender. Aggressive in flavor – more spice & herbs than fruit right now. Cool as can be. 112 cases made.

More Information

KEEP is an up-and-coming, husband & wife made/operated tiny winery based in Napa. They squeeze in the time for their own brand while keeping their day jobs. Jack and Johanna both have wine-making experience past and present (Jack is Assistant Winemaker at Matthiasson Winery) so they make the KEEP wines, and manage their vineyard sources, as a team. The wines are typically 12-mid 13% alcohol, have healthy acidities and minimal sulphur additions. They make myriad intriguing, delicious wines, each laced with an element of mystery (the grape, place, style) that makes wine exciting. I recommend them all.
