DescriptionSine Qua Non Syrah 2005
Nail In My Cranium
"Black as a moonless night, the 2005 17th Nail reveals a stunning nose of spring flowers intermixed with creme de cassis, blackberries, charcoal, graphite, and hints of lard and barbecue spices. Dense, with an endless (and I mean endless) finish, remarkable purity, and layer upon layer of flavor, but no sense of heaviness or flabbiness, this prodigious Syrah should evolve for 15 or more years." (100 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #184, Aug. 2009)
