2012 Sine Qua Non "In the Abstract" California White Blend

SKU #1185313 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark In the same league, the 2012 In The Abstract is a classic Sine Qua Non white blend of 37% Chardonnay, 31% Roussanne, 16% Petite Manseng and 16% Viognier. Coming from roughly equal parts Bien Nacido, Cumulus and Eleven Confessions vineyard, it spent just under 19 months in 48% used barrels (1-4 years old), 27% new French oak and the balance in concrete eggs. It sports a slightly darker color than the Chardonnay and offers up incredible notes of caramelized peaches, poached apples, white flowers and crushed rock that flow seamlessly to a full-bodied, decadent, yet classy and graceful feel on the palate. It’s a classic effort that doesn’t pull any punches, yet also never seems hot, heavy or puts a foot wrong. Enjoy this beauty over the coming decade or more. Drink through 2024.

95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A dense and lemony white with lemon curd, cooked apple and hints of cream. Full-bodied, very deep and oily. Long and flavorful. Back to the legendary style of SQN. Inner quote mark (7/2015)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2012 White Wine In The Abstract represents a return to a much more opulent style after a few years in which the Sine Qua Non whites were a bit more energetic than is typically the case. Honey, apricot, mint, orange blossom and spices meld together in a huge, viscous wine that covers every inch of the palate. The purity of the fruit here is simply striking. (AG) Inner quote mark (6/2014)
