    Description

    Sine Qua Non Grenache 2005
    The Naked Truth
    Bottle (1)

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

    "A blend of 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah (any Mourvedre added to the Grenache is now a thing of the past), this wine, made totally from the 11 Confessions Vineyard in the Santa Rita Hills, is young, yet like all the SQN wines, approachable in its glorious display of fruit, purity and freshness. Dense purple, and offering up notes of cranberries, pepper, boysenberries, raspberries and cherries, a cornucopia of red and black fruits emerge from the aromatics, gently dosed with some spicy oak and Provencal herbs. Full-bodied, gutsy and fleshy, with loads of glycerin, a heady mouthfeel and a long finish..." (97 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #196, Aug. 2011)


    Estimate: $450 - $550.
