Finishes with outstanding sweet persistence and lingering spices. Seven people took two days to hand-destem a mere 1.3 tons of fruit. Incidentally, the amount of fruit that Krankl pulls from his densely planted, severely green-harvested vineyard is absurdly low: in 2006 his white wine yield was 1.28 tons per acre, grenache was 1.31 tons per acre, and syrah was 1.52 tons.Author: Josh Raynolds
