|100 RP - Surprise Surprise Surprise another Perfect 100pt Wine from the Krankls The perfect 2005 Syrah Atlantis Fe 203-1abc is a blend of 93% Syrah 5% Grenache and 2% Viognier with 25% whole clusters. Whereas the Ode to E is all from the Eleven Confessions Vineyard this cuvee is a combination of 43% from the estate vineyard 28% from the White Hawk Vineyard 21% from the Alban Vineyard and 8% from the Bien Nacido Vineyard. The good news is there are nearly 1500 cases of this recently released offering. An extraordinarily flowery nose interwoven with scents of blueberries blackberries incense and graphite soars from the glass. Although not the biggest or most concentrated Syrah Krankl has made it is one of the most nuanced elegant and complex. It remains full-bodied but builds incrementally on the palate and comes across as elegant and delicate especially when compared to many California Syrahs. Nevertheless the intensity is mind-boggling and the finish lasts for nearly a minute. Drink this amazing effort over the next 10-15+ years.
