Wow. Seriously brilliant wine from Manfred Krankle. I can’t say that I’ve ever had a pure graciano before - comes across to me as a hypothetical cross between a grenache and a high-end merlot (like a Petrus-level merlot). Opened up yesterday but it was very closed, so we put a cork in it and kept it in the fridge for 24 hours. WHAT A DIFFERENCE. Absolutely amazing nose of violets, crushed blackberries, candied blueberries, and hints of a chocolate ganache. Palate is pure SQN, with that elegant intensity that characterizes everything that comes out of Manfred’s winery. Lingering, perfectly balanced finish that goes on for well over a minute. Awesome.

A very plush wine and similar in feel to other Krankl wines except very different flavor profile. Hard to explain other than I have never had a straight Graciano. Lavender, mint, Indian spices, and pepper. I would love to try this again in 4-5 years.
