2013 Sine Qua Non "Jusqu' à l'os" Sta. Rita Hills Grenache

SKU #1331835 100 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2013 Grenache Jusqu' a l'os was produced from 79% Grenache from the 11 Confessions Vineyard along with 18% Syrah and 3% Petite Sirah, produced using 89% whole cluster and aged for around 38 months in 51% used oak, 6% new French oak and 43% concrete tanks (bottled December 6, 2016). It displays a medium to deep garnet color and rock star vibrant red currant and black raspberry scents with hints of licorice, mocha, Indian spices and peppered salami plus oh-so-fragrant and seductive touches of potpourri and chargrill. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and opulently fruited in the mouth, the alluring, velvety tannins support savory, spicy layers right through the long, mineral-laced finish. This is one drop dead gorgeous, femme fatale of a wine. (LPB) Inner quote mark (9/2017)

Outer quote mark Manfred’s 2013 Grenache Jusqu’ A l’Os (which means “To the Bone”) tastes like the essence of Grenache from California, and I’m always amazed at the singular character as well as the power this estate can achieve. Kirsch, blackberries, Asian spices, forest floor and hints of white pepper all soar from the glass of this sensational Grenache that packs a wealth of richness and depth, yet dances across the palate with no weight, heaviness or coarseness. Bravo! Inner quote mark (3/2019)

96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark A darker, more potent side of Grenache comes through in the 2013 Grenache Jusqu'à l'Os. This powerhouse wine is nowhere near ready to drink. Swaths of tannin enshroud a core of plum, dark fruit in this muscular, brooding Grenache from Sine Qua Non. Readers will have to be patient. The 2013 is 79% Grenache, 18% Syrah and 3% Petite Sirah, all from Eleven Confessions, done with 89% whole clusters. (AG) 96+ Inner quote mark (9/2017)
