RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A burst of black fruit, mocha, espresso and licorice hits the palate as the 2009 Syrah Next of Kyn shows off its inimitable personality. There is a pure voluptuousness in the 2009 that is striking. The immense purity of the fruit gives the 2009 tons of elegance and character. At the same time, big, rich, silky tannins form a backbone that allows the wine to show its expressiveness and pedigree. The 2009 is shaping up to be a jewel of a wine. In 2009, the blend is 80% Syrah, 14% Grenache and 6% Roussanne, all destemmed. The wine spent 30 months in French oak.

Next of Kyn, Central Coast, California
Cumulus is Sine Qua Non's "home" vineyard. It is located in the rather little known area of Oak View (South of Santa Barbara) where Manfred and Elaine Krankl live and where they also have their winery. The area is relatively warm and therefore it typically is the first of thei vineyards to be harvested. Here they have numerous small blocks of varying vine training syles. The first block was planted in 2004 and is compromised of Syrah, Grenahce and Roussanne. In 2008 they planted two more blocks. These house the rare white grapes Petite Manseng, the equally rare Touriga Nacional, as well as small amount of Mourvedre, Petite Sirah and two more small Syrah selections. One of these blocks is trained in a sort of Cote Rotie style. It is a super dense planting at 4,350 vines per acre and also own-rooted (no foreign rootstocks grafted onto the scions).

This Cumulus Vineyard is also the fruit source of a newer brand that was launched with the 2007 vintage. It is called 'Next of Kyn'. A younger sister the Sine Qua Non if you will.

Central Coast

View all wine

The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

While the region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.

Other Red Blends

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
