2007 Sine Qua Non "Pictures" California Grenache

SKU #1065566 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A blend of 87% Grenache, 11.5% Syrah, and 1.5% Viognier, this wine has wonderful floral notes intermixed with black raspberries, black cherries, licorice, graphite and some camphor. In the mouth, more white chocolate notes appear, along with meatiness and some silky tannins. Its great purity, density and richness make me think this wine could even improve a few points and flirt with perfection. This stunning wine should drink nicely for another 10-15 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (8/2011)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Deep, bright ruby. Wild aromas of black raspberry compote, mocha, Asian spices and incense. Expansive and deeply concentrated, with obvious sweetness to its very intense red fruit, floral and spicecake flavors. Shows real spine and outstanding finesse for a rich wine. Finishes vibrant and extremely long, with great spicy perfume. (JR) Inner quote mark (12/2010)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Mid crimson. Scented, almost floral cherry. Lifted and fragrant and delicate but intense. Intense herbal note of thyme and dried herbs. Even with all that alcohol and depth there's a finesse to the wines though the alcohol really does hit my head. Really fragrant on the mid palate and finish. The best of the Grenache wines and much more evident acidity. 17.5/20 points. (JH) Inner quote mark (10/2012)

K&L Notes

Robert Parker wrote of Manfred Krankl in 2010: "His meticulous craftsmanship and phenomenal attention to detail, both in the vineyard and in the winery, have been increasingly noticeable over the last decade. He seemed to hit full stride about eight or nine years ago, and what has unfolded since then is an absolutely brilliant succession of true works of genius."
