Expert Reviews

93-95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2013

(includes 12.5% syrah, 11.5% mourvedre and 1% roussanne; 15.75% alcohol):  Deep ruby.  Highly aromatic scents of black raspberry, dried cherry, smoky minerals and potpourri.  Dense, lush and sweet, with spicy dark berry, bitter chocolate, herb and licorice flavors complemented by candied violet.  Impressively rich but shows plenty of energy thanks to intense minerality and spiciness.  Finishes very long, with firm but ripe tannins and echoing florality.  The majority of the fruit here was grown in the Krankls' Cumulus and Krankls' Eleven Confessions vineyards; 3% of the grenache came from the Bien Nacido vineyard.
