NEXT OF KYN 4 BOTTLES 3 bottles of "No-12" & 1 bottle of Touriga Nacional "Número Quatro"

(98 WA): This cuvée comes entirely from the Krankl’s “home” vineyard—the Cumulus vineyard in Oak View, just south and inland from Santa Barbara, on the road to Ojai. There are now just over 12.5 acres planted at Cumulus. The first plantings of Syrah, Grenache and Roussanne took place in 2004. A little more Grenache was planted in 2005. Then in 2008, small blocks of Petite Manseng, Syrah, Touriga Nacional, Mourvedre and Petite Sirah were added, including 3.5 acres on its own roots.

The 2018 Touriga Nacional Numero Quatro is a blend of 76% Touriga Nacional, 6.2% Petite Sirah, 9.1% Syrah, 7.2% Grenache and 1.5% Roussanne, using 35% whole clusters. It spent around 33 months in French oak barrels, 60% new.

Featuring an opaque purple-black color, the nose opens like a rocket, soaring with plum preserves, blueberry pie, star anise and kirsch scents, followed by hints of tobacco leaf, cedar chest, dried lavender and menthol, plus a waft of dusty soil. The full-bodied palate is laden with black and red berry layers, supported by firm, grainy tannins and beautifully poised acidity, finishing with fantastic length and loads of red fruit and blossom sparks. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown
