Has lots of herb, sage and savory flavors, with a mass of dry tannins, but the dense mineral, dried berry and earthy notes come through. Best from 2009 through 2013.

Keefer has not been Loring’s most successful bottling. The ’06 is pleasant, and in its own way delicious, with upfront raspberry, cherry, cola and smoky vanilla flavors balanced with crisp acidity. But it has a candied one-dimensionality, and doesn’t seem likely to age.
