Producer Notes

Manfred Krankl, an Austrian immigrant and Los Angeles restaurateur turned winemaker, is a reclusive and maniacally hard-working proprietor. His back-alley Ventura winery, dubbed the "garage d'or," has been described as "a junkyard (or the first or second level of hell)" and compared to a set from the movie "Mad Max" by Robert Parker.

Drink Dates 2010-2020

Nearly opaque black purple colored wine with a few slow moving and deeply pigmented legs. Leather, anise, smoke, plum, espresso, and tar aromatics with some rose, stone, mineral and baker?s chocolate grace notes. Almost painfully intense in the mouth with tremendous length and depth. Sweet mocha and licorice flavor just never want to stop. Tannin is barely perceptible given how much power (much of it latent) this wine possesses. Acidity is more than sufficient and while not objectionable needs some time to become better integrated. Tighter than previous examples but the wine?s immense potential is undeniable. 96% Syrah with 2% each of Viognier and Grenache mixed in.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
