SINE QUA NON

2017 Estate Grenache Eleven Confessions Vineyard | Sta. Rita Hills, Santa Barbara County California 750 ml



...Quite dark for Grenache, but brilliant...even sparkly. Right away it is forward, sprite and lively. There is a singing nose with a dark backdrop. I get tones of pomegranate and a nuance of sap from the under-the-bark limb of a tree. Fresh spring herbs too. The mouth is fanned out and broad with quiet notes of chopped olives. The wine is very soft and gentle, but has amazing persistence. A mild and caressing finish sticks with you until the cows come home. The longer it sits in the glass, the better it gets. It is sneaky, very supple and mind-blowingly determined. | Manfred Krankl for SQN Wines

The 2017 Grenache Eleven Confessions Vineyard, which will be the name going forward for this wine sourced exclusively from the Eleven Confessions Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills, reveals a gorgeous perfume of assorted red and blue fruits as well as iron, ground pepper, Asian spices, and herbs de Provence. Based on 88.7% Grenache, 10.6% Syrah, and the rest Viognier, this full-bodied, ultra-fine, deep, layered Grenache is just about as good as it gets. Drink it any time over the coming 10-15 years... | 99 points, Jeb Dunnuck for jebdunnuck.com
