Chateau Rayas Chateauneuf-du-Pape Reserve 1988 750ml (slightly stained label)

Grenache (Garnacha), Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Rhone, France

A gorgeous effort, the 1988 has come on strong lately. While neither as flamboyant as the 1990 nor as extracted as the 1989, it is a gorgeously elegant example that would be interesting to insert in a top grand cru red Burgundy tasting. Flowery, sweet black cherries and raspberries, along with resiny, loamy soil aromas jump from the glass of this dark ruby-colored Chateauneuf.

Sine Qua Non Atlantis Fe203 Syrah 2005 750ml

Syrah, Central Coast, California, USA, SQN

Bottle


   SKU: CALR-000312
   Vintage: 2005
   Color: Red
   Varietal: Syrah/Shiraz
Btls Available:13
Btls in Case:12
Producer Name:Sine Qua Non
Robert Parker (RP): 100
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. Whereas the Ode to E is all from the Eleven Confessions Vineyard, this cuvee is a combination of 43% from the estate vineyard, 28% from the White Hawk Vineyard, 21% from the Alban Vineyard, and 8% from the Bien Nacido Vineyard. The good news is there are nearly 1,500 cases of this recently released offering. 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. Drink this amazing effort over the next 10-15+ years.

Sine Qua Non Papa Syrah 2003 750ml RP 98

Syrah, Central Coast, California, USA, SQN

Bottle


   SKU: CALR-000411
   Vintage: 2003
   Color: Red
   Varietal: Syrah/Shiraz
Btls Available:18
Btls in Case:12
Producer Name:Sine Qua Non
Robert Parker (RP): 98
There are 860 cases of the 2003 Papa, a blend of 97% Syrah, 2% Mourvedre, and 1% Grenache sourced from six different vineyards. An old black and white photograph of Manfred Krankl’s father holding a baby with a head the size of a large watermelon (presumably Manfred) serves as the label for this wine, which has just about everything one could want in a great Syrah. It exhibits extraordinary power and richness along with large quantities of sexy, seductive cassis, black cherries, and a chocolaty undertone. Unctuously textured, rich, and full, it will provide amazing drinking over the next 10-15 years.

Sine Qua Non The Duel Estate Grenache 2008 750ml

Grenache, Sta Rita Hills, Santa Barbara County, Central Coast, California, USA, SQN

Bottle


   SKU: CALR-000377
   Vintage: 2008
   Color: Red
   Varietal: Grenache/Garnacha
Btls Available:12
Btls in Case:12
Producer Name:Sine Qua Non
Robert Parker (RP): 97
Sine Qua Non’s 2008 Grenache Estate The Duel boasts extraordinary richness, power and sheer depth. Tobacco, leather, mint and spices are woven together in this large-scaled Grenache. There is plenty of intensity here, but the 2008 has just a touch less aromatic definition than the very finest wines at Sine Qua Non. I imagine some of that may be the result of extended aging in oak. The 2008 is 82% Grenache, 14% Syrah, 2% Viognier and 1% Roussanne, all from the Eleven Confessions Vineyard in Santa Rita Hills. A portion of the Grenache was fermented using whole clusters. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.
