Sine Qua Non Jusqu'à l'Os Grenache 2013

100 points - limited                     Limited new Grenache from cult producer Sine Qua Non. 100 Points Robert Parker: "The 2013 Grenache Jusqu' a l'os was produced from 79% Grenache from the 11 Confessions Vineyard along with 18% Syrah and 3% Petite Sirah, produced using 89% whole cluster and aged for around 38 months in 51% used oak, 6% new French oak and 43% concrete tanks (bottled December 6, 2016). It displays a medium to deep garnet color and rock star vibrant red currant and black raspberry scents with hints of licorice, mocha, Indian spices and peppered salami plus oh-so-fragrant and seductive touches of potpourri and chargrill. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and opulently fruited in the mouth, the alluring, velvety tannins support savory, spicy layers right through the long, mineral-laced finish. This is one drop dead gorgeous, femme fatale of a wine." 98 Points Jeb Dunnuck:  "Meaning 'To The Bone' in English, the 2013 Grenache Jusqu’ a l’Os is the estate release from the Eleven Confessions Vineyard and is a blend of 79% Grenache, 18% Syrah and 3% Petite Sirah that was fermented with very little destemming and aged 38 months in 6% new French oak, 51% used barrels, and 43% in concrete tanks. It’s a peppery, perfumed, seriously endowed Grenache that offers tons of blackcurrants, blackberries, smoked earth, toasted spice and graphite aromas and flavors. Big, backward, tight and structured, yet gorgeously concentrated, it needs 4-5 years of cellaring to hit its peak and will see its 20th birthday in fine form."
