    Sine Qua Non Syrah 2008
    The Duel
    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.

    "Endless layers of seamless fruit are woven together in this utterly impeccable, full-bodied wine. The 2008 boasts dazzling richness and sheer power. It is pretty clear that in 2008 the Syrah did better than the Grenache with extended time in barrel. Violets, mint, tar and licorice flesh out on the huge, explosive finish." (97+ pts. Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate #202, Aug. 2012)

    "A prodigious effort that possesses overflowing richness and depth, the 2008 Syrah The Duel (88% Syrah, 6% Grenache and 6% Viognier, all from the Eleven Confessions Vineyard) delivers an off-the-hook drinking experience with decadent cassis, blackberry, smoked meats, crushed flowers and hints of spice all soaring from the glass. A full-bodied, unctuous Syrah that stays fresh and elegant, with vibrant acidity, it needs a solid decant if drinking anytime soon and will see its 20th birthday in fine form." (99 pts. Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate #208, Aug. 2013)
