    Sine Qua Non Grenache 1999
    Icarus
    Bottle (2)

    The Pigasus Collection—A veritable treasure-trove of First Growths, Burgundy, CA Cults, and German Riesling that has been perfectly stored since release.

    "1999 Icarus: Still fresh and lively, and much younger tasting than the 1998 Antagonists or the 1995 Red Handed, this wine was certainly the biggest of the early vintages from Sine Qua Non’s Grenache program. The label says the alcohol is at 14.9%, but there is a freshness and elegance to the wine (80% Grenache, 18% Syrah and 2% Viognier) that would suggest much lower alcohols, for those who foolishly as well as erroneously equate finesse with lower alcohols. Structured, still deep ruby/purple-tinged, with fresh raspberry and black cherry fruit and some loamy soil notes, as well as hints of barbecue smoke and pepper, the wine is full-bodied, ripe, yet still somewhat tightly knit, suggesting that better things are yet to come." (93+ pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #196, Aug. 2011)
