Tasting Notes
The 2021 Kerr Cellars Helicon has a dynamite, dark nose of black cherry, blackberry, graphite, black peppercorn, oiled leather, lilac, sandalwood, and bakers’ chocolate. It is round and unctuous on the entry, with layered flavors of black fruits, black peppercorn, anise, bakers’ chocolate, dried sage, pot pourri, and leather. The palate is long and textured, with the intense, dark flavors lingering beyond the finish. This wine will cellar efforetlessly and get better with age!

Winemaker Notes
The summer leading up to the 2021 harvest was ideal, with warm days and cool nights, and no intense heat spikes to speak of. The continuing drought and a few weather events during bud break limited yeilds, but the quility is very high. Small concentrated berries yeild intense flavorful wines. Though small in volume the 2021 harvest is mighty in quality.
