RP99 [2018 The Third Twin, Graciano] "Opaque purple-black in color, it opens with a provocative red berry lift—redcurrants, Morello cherries and pomegranate—over a core of mulberries, wild blueberries, lavender, fennel seed and clove oil, plus a waft of tobacco leaf. The full-bodied palate is built like a brick house, featuring very firm, beautifully ripe tannins and a racy backbone to support the ultra-concentrated red, black and blue fruit layers, finishing with great length and tons of savory sparks. Stunning." LPB Aug 2021

JD98+ "The 2019 Nuestra Senora Del Tercer Gemelo comes from the Third Twin estate vineyard, which was purchased in 2000. At that time, the vineyard covered 14.33 acres planted to Syrah and Petite Sirah, and the Krankls planted a mix of different varieties starting in 2011. Today, the estate covers just over 35 acres, and this is a cooler, sandy terroir. The wine sports a deep purple hue as well as a monster bouquet of blackberries, Italian leather, dried herbs, smoke tobacco, and pepper. Full-bodied on the palate, it's another seamless, perfectly balanced red from this team that somehow manages to bring incredible richness and power while staying flawlessly balanced and elegance. A blend of 33% Grenache, 23.5% Syrah, 19% each of Mourvedre and Petite Sirah, and the rest Graciano and Muscat, fermented with 19% whole clusters, it shows the more elegant, refined, silky style of this terroir beautifully. I like it today, but smart money will give bottles 2-4 years in the cellar. It should have 15-20 years of overall longevity." JD Aug 2022
