1997 Sine Qua Non "Imposter McCoy" Santa Barbara County Syrah (bin soilded, torn label)

SKU #1488916 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The funky artwork on the bottle emerges from Manfred Krankl's artistic side, but as the label says, "the truth is in the inside." I have already wolfed down two bottles of the 1997 Impostor McCoy (529 cases) with equally voracious friends. A thick, juicy, massive Syrah, it gushes copious quantities of licorice-infused blackberry fruit offering smoke, coffee, and meaty notes. The wine is mouth-filling, teeth-staining, and loaded. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2000)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Full ruby. Deep aromas of raspberry, blackberry, violet, nutmeg, cocoa powder, smoked meat and exotic woodsmoke. Super- concentrated, lush and thick, with a firm spine of acidity giving shape to the flavors. Rather strong oak tones. Explosive finish features thoroughly ripe tannins and a late burst of smoked meat. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2000)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Lots to admire--ripe, rich currant, meat and smoke flavors, hints of anise and mineral plus coffee and toffee notes. Finishes smooth and polished. Syrah, with 5 percent Grenache. (JL) Inner quote mark (5/2000)
