"The addition of 3% Roussanne is the big change this year," Nikolas Krankl mentioned. "It gives both the Grenache and the Syrah a little lift." The 2018 Syrah Off the Record is composed of 93% Syrah, 2% Grenache, 2% Mourvèdre and 3% Roussanne, coming from Bien Nacido vineyard and Manfred and Elaine Krankl’s Third Twin and Cumulus vineyards as well as a portion from Sebastiano vineyard. Twenty-two percent whole cluster was used. It was aged for 20 months in French oak, 68% new, and was bottled in July 2020. Deep garnet-purple colored, the most gorgeous perfume of candied violets and red roses is an immediate head-turner, before launching into a flat-out tantalizing cornucopia of chocolate-covered cherries, loganberries, baked plums and blueberry pie with faint suggestions of white and black pepper. Full-bodied, very soft, refined and fantastically poised in the mouth, that provocative perfume carries right on in the mouth, finishing long and mineral laced. 193 cases were made. WA 97
