SINE QUA NON

2016 Ratsel 16 Syrah | Ventura, California 750ml


...The wine is like the most handsome prize fighter you've ever seen. If George Clooney were more muscle bound, more promiscuous, more committed and maybe a little snazzier, we might have named this wine after him. But alas he's not...so all I can say is that it is like a velvet or silk cloud roaming around your cavity, stroking your taste buds, your nose, your gray cells and your ego. It stays with you seemingly forever... | Manfred Krankl

...81% Syrah, 7% Mourvedre, 5% Petite Sirah, and the rest Viognier and Grenache, fermented with 47% whole clusters, the 2016 Syrah Ratsel 16 is an inky colored beauty that has another level of depth and richness over the 2015. Black raspberries, cassis, white pepper, white chocolate, and hints of bacon fat give way to a full-bodied, seamless, elegant wine that has terrific freshness and purity, ultra-fine tannin, and a huge finish. Not too dissimilar from the 2014s, which have the same supple, sexy, and approachable style... | Jeb Dunnuck for jebdunnuck.com, 96-99 points
