The 2006 Mr. K The Strawman Marsanne Vin de Paille is 100% Marsanne from the Beckmen Vineyard that boasts 240 grams of residual sugar per liter. A medium gold-colored effort it reveals more marmalade notes interwoven with notions of maple syrup honeysuckle and exotic tropical fruits. While untuously-textured with remarkable sweetness it is not cloying because of the fresh acids. I have no idea how long these wines will last but they will undoubtedly keep for many years.The final wines to be bottled under the "Mr. K." moniker include the 2006 The Nobleman and 2006 The Strawman. As some readers may know this partnership between the famed Austrian Alois Kracher and Manfred Krankl has finally come to an end because of the tragic death of Alois Kracher who fell victim to pancreatic cancer at age 49. The Mr. K. offerings have been remarkable wines that showcased the talents of both of these great winemakers.
