    Cumulus Vineyard
    Bottle (1)

    "I think what will be the greatest wine yet from this vineyard, Krankl's inky purple 2012 Cumulus Vineyard #6 should flirt with perfection once it's released. Made from 38% Syrah, 37% Grenache, 17.4% Petite Sirah and the balance Mourvedre, fermented with 36% whole clusters, it spent 33 months in 54% new French oak, and there's a scant 320 cases made. The wine exhibits thrilling notes of liquid blackberries, violets, spring flowers and ground herbs that flow to a massive, full-bodied, unctuous and voluptuous red that has sensational purity of fruit, plenty of tannin and a killer finish. A bigger, rich, more stacked wine than the '11, it will need 4-5 years to round into form and drink well for upward of two decades. It's also worth noting that this cuvee has changed dramatically since its inception, where it was much more Syrah dominated. At this point, I think the blend is much closer to Manfred's original idea of the wine/vineyard, and, based off this showing, the wine world is better for it!" (98-100 pts.
