Mr. K The Strawman Vin de Paille 2004, 375mL (WA100) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Mr. K The Strawman Vin de Paille

375mL

Vintage: 2004
Region: US
Appellation: Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Barbara
Producer: Mr. K (Kracher/Sine Qua Non)

WA100
Rated 100 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The monumental 2004 Mr. K. The Strawman, a Semillon Vin de Pays, possesses 9.9% alcohol and 310 grams per liter of residual sugar yet an amazing 7.6 grams per liter of acidity. An elixir of amazing proportions, there are 2,500 half bottles, which will be released in early 2008. Astounding notes of marmalade, creme brulee, and a liqueur of roasted nuts are accompanied by fabulous acidity, which provides uplift and vibrancy in spite of its enormous richness and unctuosity. The only thing I can say is you must taste it to believe it! I have no idea how long these sweeties will keep, but they should easily last for two decades or more. To reiterate, it is a challenge to analyze these wines. I know they are distinctive, and I think I am beginning to understand why they are so much greater than just about every other Syrah or Grenache-based wine in California. In short, it is talent and incredibly meticulous hard work. No one works as hard or is as maniacal about a vineyard`s viticulture and winemaking as Manfred Krankl. Take that, add in exceptional talent, humility, top-notch vineyards, and I believe I understand the fundamentals of why these wines are so special. Tel. (805) 649-8901` -- Robert Parker in the Wine Advocate
