SINE QUA NON

2013 Female Grenache | Ventura, California
750ml



...checks in as a blend of 78% Grenache, 19% Syrah and 3% Mourvedre that is mostly from his Eleven Confessions estate vineyard in Sta. Rita HIlls, yet has similar portions from his Cumulus, The Third Twin and Bien Nacido vineyards. Seeing just over 24 months in a mix of demi-muids, 300-liter Hogsheads and barrique, it has a sensational bouquet of spring flowers, black raspberries, black cherries, violets, licorice and camphor. Reminding me of a great vintage of Raymond Usseglio's Cuvee Imperiale, this full-bodied, elegant Grenache is impeccably balanced, has a full and layered mid-palate...and sweet tannin on the finish. It's almost impervious to air and didn't budge an inch over the three days I followed this bottle. It will cruise for over two decades. | Jeb Dunnuck for Wine Advocate, 98 points
