2001 Sine Qua Non "Midnight Oil" California Syrah (bin soiled, nicked label)

SKU #1488919 97 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2001 Sine Qua Non Midnight Oil boast a big, almost exotic nose of both red and black fruit, spiced meat, smoke and violet aromas that is simply stunning and seems slightly old world. Full bodied with an outstanding, lush, mouth-coating texture, awesome balance and incredible length. While missing (slightly) the precision and back-end level of concentration of the Poker face, this is much more expressive and open and the finish on this wine is shockingly long. Inner quote mark (9/2007)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The impeccable 2001 Midnight Oil (95.5% Syrah, 3% Grenache, and 1.5% Viognier) is a product of four vineyards, Alban, Stolpman, Bien Nacido, and White Hawk. The good news is there are 950 cases of this compelling effort. With a 'midnight' black color, and the viscosity of 10-W-40 oil, its aromas of violet/acacia flowers, melted licorice, camphor, blackberries, creme de cassis, and subtle toasty new oak are accompanied by a wine boasting terrific texture, good underlying acidity, ripe tannin, and a 60-second plus finish. This stunning effort competes with the 2000, and what looks to be Krankl’s greatest Syrah-based wine to date, the 2002. (RP) Inner quote mark (8/2003)
