Sine Qua Non Jusqu`A L`Os Grenache 2013
Sine Qua Non is one of the most famous cult wineries in the world and winemaker, Manfred Krankl, is celebrated for crafting tiny quantities of unique Rhône-inspired wines from exceptional vineyards across the Californian Central Coast. Jusqu’à L’Os is an extended barrel-aged Grenache from the estate-owned 11 Confessions Vineyard. With small portions of Syrah and Petite Sirah also blended in, this is a deep and inky release with incredibly pure aromas of blackberry, raspberry and black cherry with wonderful hints of dried flowers, exotic spices, wild herbs and woodsmoke. Silky and lush on the palate, pixelated tannins provide ample structure and drive, with perky acidity giving vibrancy and freshness. Only 868 cases produced.
