Sine Qua Non Pinot Noir Over and Out Arita Hills Vineyard 2005, 750mL (WA94, WS94) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Sine Qua Non Pinot Noir Over and Out Arita Hills Vineyard

750mL

Vintage: 2005
Region: US
Appellation: Santa Rita Hills, Santa Barbara
Producer: Sine Qua Non

WA94, WS94
Rated 94 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `Sadly, Sine Qua Non`s final Pinot Noir will be the 2005 `Over and Out` Arita Hills Vineyard. That`s a shame as their Pinot Noir has always been one of my favorites - always rich and full-flavored rather than a dumb-downed, wimpish, and diluted faux-French imitation. This beauty has put on considerable weight since I tasted it twelve months ago. Made from Dijon clones 115 and 777, it reveals a classic Cotes de Nuits-like perfume of damp forest floor intermixed with sweet cherries, plums, figs, and spring flowers. This could easily be mistaken for a Clos de la Roche from Morey St.-Denis, but with purer fruit and a more savory texture. Dominated by its beautiful fruit and complexity, with the oak component kept in the background, it should drink well for 8-10 years. Tel. (805) 649-8901` -- Robert Parker in the Wine Advocate
