The impeccable 2001 Midnight Oil (95.5% Syrah 3% Grenache and 1.5% Viognier)...With a "midnight" black color and the viscosity of 10-W-40 oil its aromas of violet/acacia flowers melted licorice camphor blackberries creme de cassis and subtle toasty new oak are accompanied by a wine boasting terrific texture good underlying acidity ripe tannin and a 60-second plus finish. This stunning effort competes with the 2000 and what looks to be Krankl's greatest Syrah-based wine to date the 2002.
