Sine Qua Non Ode to E Assortment Syrah Grenache Blend 2004

$699

The 2004 Syrah Ode to E (a blend of 94% Syrah, 4% Grenache, and 2% Viognier) will ultimately spend 43 months in oak. (The debut vintage of this long-aged Syrah, the 2001 Heart Chorea, demonstrates that this has become one of the world's most prodigious Syrahs.) The 2004 Ode to E exhibits extraordinary purity, and beautiful sweet blackberry and cassis notes along with hints of graphite, camphor, and a subtle, but intense meaty character. Unbelievably concentrated, but neither heavy nor overbearing, this exceptional Syrah possesses a phenomenal personality, an amazing seamlessness, and no hard edges. It should be riveting when released and age easily for 12-15+ years. Drink now-2023. Robert Parker

Don’t know if I’ve ever tasted a Syrah that tastes like this. 14 years old and is fresh as can be. Wow!

Best wine I've ever had. Tremendous red baked fruit, baking spices with an amazing acidity and great depth. Speachless

Cereal nose. Chocolate covered cherry mid palate. Uniquely bright freshness through resolution. Smoldered ash, quite mouth coating.
