2004 Sine Qua Non "Mr. K Straw Man" Sémillon Vin de Pays (375ml)

SKU #1059204 100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The monumental 2004 Mr. K. The Straw Man, a Sémillon Vin de Pays, possesses 9.9% alcohol and 310 grams per liter of residual sugar yet an amazing 7.6 grams per liter of acidity. An elixir of amazing proportions, there are 2,500 half bottles, which will be released in early 2008. Astounding notes of marmalade, creme brulee, and a liqueur of roasted nuts are accompanied by fabulous acidity, which provides uplift and vibrancy in spite of its enormous richness and unctuosity. The only thing I can say is you must taste it to believe it! I have no idea how long these sweeties will keep, but they should easily last for two decades or more. (RP) Inner quote mark (8/2007)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Golden bronze. Deep apricot and orange marmalade aromas are complicated by an exotic bouquet of floral honey, licorice, botanical herbs and magnolia. Soft and fleshy, with sticky pit fruit and tangerine flavors gently supported by fresh minerality. A baking spice character builds with air, brightening the sappy, refreshingly bitter finish. If you can call it a finish, that is: I was tasting this an hour down the road. 'The key to a wine like this is starting off with perfectly ripe fruit,' says Krankl. (JR) Inner quote mark (11/2007)
