Sine Qua Non Syrah Dark Blossom 2011, 750mL (AG95-97, WA96-98, ST94-95) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Sine Qua Non Syrah Dark Blossom

750mL

Vintage: 2011
Region: US

AG95-97, WA96-98, ST94-95
Rated 96-98 points by the Wine Advocate: `Looking at Manfred`s Syrahs, the 2011 Syrah Dark Blossom is a blend of 84% Syrah, 8% Grenache, 4% Petite Sirah and 4% Roussanne that`s scheduled to be bottled later this year or early in 2014. Aging in 50% new French oak, it`s an elegant, seamless Syrah that boasts complex, layered aromatics, full-bodied richness and clean integrated acidity that keeps everything fresh and lively. It`s superb and will have two decades of longevity. Drink 2016-2031.?` -- Jeb Dunnuck in Issue #208 of the Wine AdvocateMore information about this producer: `About as good as it gets across the board, these singular, incredible wines are the result of an obsessive attention to detail at all stages of the wine making process. There is no secret or hidden magic going on here. The incredibly talented and down-to-earth Manfred Krankl simply walks the walk as opposed to only talking about attention to detail or offering up the standard, wine is made in the vineyard comments. Looking at the vintages focused on here, 2009 has produced a decadent, voluptuous style that offers up thrilling levels of fruit as well as an approachable, heady richness that`s hard to resist. While they possess ample depth and structure, I would drink these before either the 2010s or 2011s. The 2010s here are stunning and have everything; gorgeous fruit, awesome concentration and incredible purity. While the most age-worthy of the recent vintages, they`re a spectacular drink even today. The 2011s, which were all tasted out of barrel, have additional freshness and focus over the 2010s. They have solid concentration and overall balanced profiles that should allow them to cruise in the cellar.`
