2007 Sine Qua Non "Labels" California Syrah

SKU #1065565 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The recently released 2007 Syrah Labels (89% Syrah, 7% Grenache, and 4% Viognier) comes from the 11 Confessions Estate Vineyard (57%), a small amount from the home estate vineyard in Oak View called Cumulus, and the rest from purchased fruit grown in the White Hawk Vineyard in Los Alamos and the Bien Nacido Vineyard in Santa Maria. A sensational effort, it is performing even better out of bottle than it did from barrel. An opaque purple color is accompanied by beautiful notes of charcoal, acacia flowers, blueberries, blackberries, graphite, and subtle smoke. With great fruit, tremendous texture, and full-bodied power, it is locked and loaded. This cuvee should provide great drinking in addition to some provocative discussions over the next 10-15 years. (RP) 98+ Inner quote mark (8/2010)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Opaque purple. Sexy, expansive aromas of blackberry, kirsch, potpourri, sandalwood and black pepper. Sweet and rich, but juicy, with superb floral lift to the flavors of bitter cherry, dark berries and fruity pepper. A real essence of Syrah: this is all dark berries, flowers and spice, but no game, with plenty of fruit to support the oak (64% new) element. Harmonious, ripe acidity and velvety tannins give shape to a long, sweet finish. (JR) Inner quote mark (12/2010)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark ) Inky purple. Sexy aromas of black raspberry and blueberry preserves, sandalwood, cracked pepper and licorice, with a lashing of sexy Asian spices adding vibrancy and complexity. Silky, sweet and energetic, offering juicy red and dark berry flavors and showing no tannins or rough edges. Gains weight and smoky character with air and finishes with a whiplash of juicy black and blue fruits. (JR) Inner quote mark (11/2009)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Fresh, intense, firm and vibrant, with a touch of suppleness midpalate, focused on spice, pepper, sour blackberry and wild berry, holding its focus and ending with drying tannins. (JL) Inner quote mark (6/2010)

K&L Notes

High praise from Robert Parker, who said in 2010 that "Krankl's fame rests on the strength of his wines - compelling, singular, and world-class wines that are like no others being produced on Planet Earth."
