The 2010 Cumulus Vineyard #4 is an off-the-hook effort that showed even better than last year. Made from 44% Syrah, 32% Grenache, 12% Petite Sirah, 8% Mourvedre and 4% Touriga Nacional, it’s mostly destemmed (24% whole cluster) and aged 30 months in 30% new French oak. It boasts incredible aromatics of cassis, blackberry, white chocolate, flowers and spice-box to go with a full-bodied, incredibly pure, seamless and textured feel on the palate. Still a baby, this puppy has a long life ahead of it; give it another year or so and enjoy bottles through 2030.
Next of Kyn was introduced by the talented Manfred and Elaine Krankl in 2007 as a completely separate operation from his Sine Qua Non wines. Next of Kyn wines are sourced from their Cumulus Vineyard that is planted around their estate in Oakview. Each Next of Kyn release are sold in box set which contains three 750ml and one magnum. Production is extremely low, so getting your hands on these phenomenal bottles could be tough, but we have quite the selection!
