2005 Sine Qua Non "Atlantis Fe203-1 a,b,c" California Syrah

SKU #1070607 100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The perfect 2005 Syrah Atlantis Fe 203-1a,b,c is a blend of 93% Syrah, 5% Grenache, and 2% Viognier, with 25% whole clusters... An extraordinarily flowery nose interwoven with scents of blueberries, blackberries, incense, and graphite soars from the glass. Although not the biggest or most concentrated Syrah Krankl has made, it is one of the most nuanced, elegant, and complex. It remains full-bodied, but builds incrementally on the palate, and comes across as elegant and delicate, especially when compared to many California Syrahs. Nevertheless, the intensity is mind-boggling, and the finish lasts for nearly a minute. (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2008)

94-95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Opaque ruby color. Powerful, impressively concentrated black raspberry and boysenberry aromas are complicated by smoky minerals, candied licorice, incense and cured tobacco. Pliant dark berry flavors stain the palate and are energized by zesty minerals. A big, sweet palate-stainer that somehow manages to be graceful as well. Sweet black and blue fruit flavors linger endlessly on the finish, which is refreshingly spicy and focused. (JR) Inner quote mark (11/2008)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Beefy, spicy, peppery aromas join dried berry and dried currant flavors that are intense and well- proportioned. Stays tightly focused and turns elegant, with a spicy espresso aftertaste. (JL) Inner quote mark (11/2008)

K&L Notes

According to Robert Parker in 2008: "From my perspective, thirty years of experience have always suggested that vineyards with the lowest yields tend to produce the most interesting wines. Sine Qua Non has emerged as one of the world’s greatest wineries over the last decade, and low yields are part of the reason."
