Tasting Notes

WA96

The debut release from the new home vineyard on the steep hillsides of Ventura is the 2007 Next of Kyn Syrah Cumulus The 2007 Syrah Cumulus Vineyard is a meaty, earthy effort representing a hypothetical blend of a northern Rhone with the exuberant, unabashedly ripe, juicy fruit of California. Jus de viande, damp earth, black currant, and blackberry notes along with good minerality and an absence of oak are all present in this full-bodied Syrah. It still has some tannins to resolve, but it is a big, full-bodied, classic, promising debut effort from the Cumulus Vineyard. It should drink well for at least a decade. 96+

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!
