Description

    Sine Qua Non Syrah 2009
    The Thrill of...
    Bottle (6)
    "The 2009 Syrah The Thrill of... is predominantly Syrah, with a touch of Grenache (4.5%) and Viognier (2.5%), all fully destemmed. It is a fabulous wine graced with layers of black cherries, blackberries, tar, menthol, smoke and spices. Hints of licorice and violets develop in the glass, adding further layers of complexity as this mysterious wine gradually opens up to reveal its pedigree. The French oak (50% new) is beautifully balanced, while the finish is energetic, intense and opulent." (96-98pts Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate #196, Aug 2011)

    "The 2009 Syrah The Thrill Of impresses for its poise and underlying energy. Dark fruit, spices, licorice and violets sit on a core of firm tannin as this powerful wine opens up in the glass. Today, The Thrill Of comes across as very, very young. The intensity of the fruit and the oak are dominant at present. In another few years the wine should be spectacular." (95 pts. Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate #202, Aug. 2012)
