- 100 Punkte JEB DUNNUCK: „Named after Manfred’s grandfather, the 2017 Syrah The Hated Hunter is 82.4% Syrah, 7.8% Petite Sirah, 5.2% Mourvèdre, 2% Grenache, and the rest a mix of white varieties that spent just over 23 months in 59% new French oak. A classic 2017, it has an incredible nose of spice red and black fruits, ground pepper, dried flowers, and sandalwood. With full-bodied richness, no hard edges, gorgeous purity of fruit, and a finish that won't quit, it has everything you could want from a bottle of wine. This cuvée comes from a mix of the The Twin, Eleven Confession, Cumulus, and Molly Aida vineyards, and was bottled in August of 2019, with 1821 cases produced.“


-  98+ Punkte, Parkers WINE ADVOCATE, Lisa Perrotti-Brown: „The 2017 Syrah The Hated Hunter (first tasted last year as a barrel sample and before it had been named) is composed of 82.4% Syrah, 5.2% Mourvèdre, 7.8% Petite Sirah, 2% Grenache, 1.2% Petit Manseng and 1.4% Viognier that was fermented with 26% whole cluster. The vineyard sources are 32% Eleven Confessions, 41% The Third Twin, 25% Cumulus and 2% Molly Aida. It was aged for around 23 months in French oak, 59% new.

Deep garnet-black, the nose slowly unfurls to offer a vast array of savory, earthy, meaty notes—peppered salami, black olives, charcoal, wild sage and cast-iron pan—over a core of plum preserves, Morello cherries and boysenberries with wafts of menthol, tobacco leaf, Chinese five spice and aniseed. Full-bodied, the palate reveals surprising elegance, poise and restraint, delivering a mid-palate of exotic spices and a seductively plush texture, finishing with tons of earthy nuances and an invigorating minty lift.

1,821 cases and 600 magnums were made. "The Hated Hunter" features an old black and white photo on the label of Manfred Krankl's grandfather in hunting gear, posing with his rifle and hound. The companion 2017 Grenache to this Syrah is "The Gorgeous Victim," a reference to the black and white photo of a carefully composed deer trophy on that label. If wines can tell stories—and I firmly believe they can—I would love to revisit this evocative pair of wines after a decade of cellaring. What a dark, soul-searching, complex tale that will be.“   2023-2043

Notizen des Weinguts: The name should be reasonably self-explanatory if you worked yourself through the above “Dostoyevsky of the illiterate.” It is a quite majestic vinous rendering and one that Opa Josef would have enjoyed sipping and blabbing about. It is a cuvee of 82.4% Syrah, 7.8% Petite Sirah, 5.2% Mourvedre, 2.0% Grenache and 2.6% Whites (1.4% Viognier and 1.2% Petit Manseng). It was fermented with 26% whole clusters (meaning on that percentage of the fruit the stems were fermented with the berries). The fruit was all Estate grown on our four ranches/vineyards. Since you might want the score, here is that insight as well. 41% is from THE THIRD TWIN vineyard near the little town of Los Alamos. Not the creation place of the atomic bomb in New Mexico, but the Man-Grape-Project in California. 32%from the ELEVEN CONFESSIONS vineyard in the Santa Rita Hills, 25% from the CUMULUS vineyard right here in Oak View where we live and where the winery is and 2% from the MOLLY AÏDA vineyard in Tepusquet Canyon…in the back of Santa Maria, way out in the boonies where banjo playing is still prime entertainment. We used 59% brand new and all French oak barrels to educate this class act and the wine proves this was a clever decision. Maybe not intelligent per se, but certainly pretty darn good intuition. I suppose it shouldn’t be, but it is always tough for me to describe something like that and be meaningfully picturesque, but not get off-the-wall and too hoity toity. Incidentally, before I give you a few colors and adjectives, I want to quickly say that I read a bunch about possible smoke taint in Napa (how true = who knows?), but one way or another timing was such for us that luckily we have had no such issues or concerns. At any rate – this Hunter – searches for all of your receptors. Like all the Syrah we have ever made, this is no wilting flower. But it is behaved and respectful and courteous. It all starts out with a fantastic color that is deep and dark, but also lively and almost shellacked looking….which we strive to achieve and which I love. The nose is very much SQN (that’s what my notes say anyway) with fruit forwardness and quite a lot of seductive character. There are also tones of forest floor and mushrooms, but black and red fruits remain dominant forces. The mouth is very pretty – almost chaste (the almost is important here) and there is a savory, but silky and expressive expression and a lovely, superbly friendly, pleasant, involving and thought-provoking interaction with all the tasting participants. If my Opa had had more education, he would have wanted to be like this gem.
