via Instagram ‘Without which nothing’. Do you prefer Syrah or Grenache? Thanks to @worldclasswinesoregon we had the opportunity to try both of the Sine Qua Non ‘04 ‘Ode to E’ Rhône style blends in these magnificent magnums from Manfred and Elaine Krankl on 03-05-2017.
‘04 Sine Qua Non Central Coast Syrah ‘Ode To E’
Inky purple. Intense blackberry creme de cassis, smoked meat, violet and cedar aromas. Full body with layered, perfumed flavors of blue and boysenberry fruit, violet, licorice and spice. This wine is fully integrated with a peppery finish. Drink now or hold a few more years. 98 points.
‘04 Sine Qua Non Central Coast Grenache ‘Ode to E’
Vibrant purple. Here we find notes of graphite and herb, with intense creme de cassis, raspberry, rose petals and spices. Full body, seamless flavor profile and amazing texture. This one is a bit more nuanced, perfectly balanced and dripping with opulence. Drink now or hold a few more years. 99 points.
