"Medium garnet-purple, this young, bombastic Grenache explodes from the glass with the most incredible perfume: red roses, cinnamon stick, lilacs and crushed black cherries with chocolate box, aniseed, garrigue and dried herbs plus gentle waves of lavender, dusty soil and smoked meats. Full-bodied with an incredibly silky texture, the decadently fruited palate features amazing freshness and vibrancy, finishing with stacks of flavor layers and a provocatively savory/chewy lift coming from the use of whole cluster. Just. Magic. It is anticipated that 1225 cases and 600 magnums will be bottled. (LPB)" 98-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: (06/2019)

"Not yet bottled, the 2017 Grenache The Gorgeous Victim is based on 76% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre, 9% Syrah, and the rest Petite Sirah and Viognier. It saw 46% stems (mostly for the Grenache) and will spend 23 months in just 23% new French oak. This full-bodied, gorgeous effort sports a saturated purple hue as well as blockbuster notes of spice box, ground pepper, red currants, and hints of cured meats. This classic, powerful Grenache from Krankl is flawlessly balanced, has plenty of tannins, and delivers a great finish. While it’s going to provide plenty of pleasure in its youth, it will benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age." 97-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: (10/2019)
