Tasting Notes

2007 Grenache Dangerous Birds: This wine, which is scheduled to be released in several months, is 88% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 2% Viognier (36% whole clusters utilized), all from the 11 Confessions Vineyard. A whopper at 15.6% alcohol, this is the extended barrel-aged Grenache, spending 32 months in a combination of small oak casks as well as larger demi-muids. Absolutely magnificent, with incredible uplifted aromatics and great raspberry and black cherry fruit intermixed with blackberry, camphor, licorice and lavender, this wine is full-bodied, with super purity and a huge, massive mouthfeel as well as stunning texture and length. How Krankl was able to combine almost unbridled power with such extraordinary purity, definition and elegance is mind-boggling. This wine should drink well for at least 15+ years.
