DescriptionSine Qua Non Grenache 2000
"The 2000 Incognito (a blend of 95% Grenache and 5% Syrah) is the finest Grenache-based effort the Krankls have yet produced. A black/ruby/purple color is followed by a lavishly exotic nose of super-rich as well as super-ripe black cherries, black currants, blackberries, licorice, pepper, and other heavenly delights. It is a wine of extraordinary opulence, texture, and purity with a finish that lasts 65+ seconds. Undeniably the greatest Grenache I have tasted from California, it is a reference point for what can be achieved by someone pushing the envelope of quality at all stages - viticultural, winemaking, and cellar work. Kudos to the Krankls. It should drink well for 10-15 years, but who can resist it that long?" (98 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #148, Aug. 2003)
