    Sine Qua Non Grenache 2004
    Ode to E
    Bottle (6)

    "The 2004 Ode to E Eleven Confessions Vineyard Grenache (which was scheduled to be bottled just after my visit) is a 248-case cuvee aged in 41% new oak. It has a strong chance of meriting a three digit score when bottled. An amazing wine, it boasts an inky/ruby/purple color in addition to a glorious aromatic profile of pen ink, licorice, sweet black cherries, and black currants. With exceptional density, purity, nuance, and delicacy, it is a blend of 88% Grenache, 10% Syrah, and 2% Viognier, the latter component providing uplift as well as a mindboggling degree of complexity. It is an incredible example of Grenache that should drink beautifully for 10-15+ years." (96-100 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #177, June 2008)

    "Leading off with the Grenache-driven efforts, and easily the greatest expression of the variety I’ve ever tasted from California, the 2004 Ode to E (Grenache) is mind-blowing stuff that will stand toe-to-toe with the greatest Grenache-based wines ever made. Coming from Manfred’s Eleven Confessions Vineyard and comprised of 88% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 2% Viognier, it sports a still vibrant purple color to go with off-the-hook aromas and flavors of creme de cassis, melted licorice, graphite, smoked herbs and assorted meaty nuances. Full-bodied, seamless and elegant, with incredible purity and a perfect texture, it can be consumed anytime over the coming decade." (100 pts. Jeb Dunnuck, eRobertParker.com #213, July 2014)
