Sine Qua Non Piranha Waterdance Syrah 2014

$405

...provocative, inky purple colored... hits the scent scene with exuberant, pure crème de cassis, blackberry cordial and blueberry coulis notes with hints of espresso, licorice, garrigue and menthol, plus a gorgeous underlying perfume of red roses. The full-bodied palate is oh-so-elegant and pretty, revealing very finely pixelated tannins that beautifully frame the almost electric intensity, culminating in an epically long, licorice and chocolate-laced finish. Too stunning for mere words and rude to even try—just drink it. 1,839 cases and 600 magnums were produced. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

One of the most open knit SQN Syrahs I’ve ever had. I got to this after it had been opened maybe 30mins and it was singing! A wine that envelops all the senses. Smoked brisket, teriyaki sauce, iron, stemmy blackberry aromatics. A plush and iron fist in a velvet glove on the palate. Glycerin like texture. Ripe blackberries and rhubarb pie in the middle with a savory, smoky finish that lasts forever. Incredible! Thank you @Keith Fisher

Enjoyed this 100 point beauty that I acquired from @David L . thanks bud! Dinner with Christine, my Dad and his wife Joan is alwsays a great time to uncork one of these beauties. Stunning nose, elegance and finesse on the palate even if a huge monster. Godzilla in a pair of tights perfectly performing Swan Lake! Lush dark fruit, licorice (which I love) and an epic long finish. Truly spectacular! Everything one would expect from a badass SQN

I’m pretty sure this was awesome, but my Zoom hangover is clouding my memory just a bit. I do know we had a lot of fun!

2014 Vintage. 15.8% Alcohol. Lots of lavender and hints of rosemary. Still needs time.
