Product Description

"Possessing an uncommon purity and freshness, the 2013 Cumulus Vineyard #7 is 45% Syrah, 29% Grenache, 15% Petite Sirah and the rest Mourvedre, Touriga Nacionale and Roussanne. It has a perfumed, floral character as well as killer notes of cassis, exotic spice and violets, full-bodied density and depth, and building, polished tannin that emerge on the finish. It’s as seamless and pure as they come, and while I’m sure I’d crack a bottle the night I received it, it will benefit from . . . cellaring. First released in 2007, Manfred Krankl’s Next Of Kyn releases focus on his estate vineyard located around his winery just outside of Oak View. While these releases were heavily Syrah dominated in the past, today, they’re a much more diverse mix of varieties, and as I think the notes show, they’re better for it. While these are marketed completely separately from the Sine Qua Non releases, the quality today is absolutely on par and these are some of the most exciting wines coming out of California."
