Sine Qua Non Shakti Grenache Blend 2014

$399

...It offers up a deep garnet-purple color and notes of dried Mediterranean herbs, dusty earth, Chinese five spice and rose petals over a core of red currants, mulberries, red plums and black raspberries, plus a waft of chocolate covered cherries. Full-bodied, decadently concentrated and yet very, very pretty in the mouth, it delivers incredibly fine-grained, ripe tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing on a persistent—totally disarming—perfumed red fruit note. 1,199 cases of 750 milliliter bottles and 600 magnums were made.

Syrupy dark and roasted. Intense. A bit too much for me.

This was enjoyable but not for me at such a high price. Don't understand the SQN craze...

A very dark, powerful Grenache. Nicely rounded with no hard edges anywhere. Very nice.

20/20 (100/100) Глубокий, безумно красивый аромат с нотами шоколада, кедра, ванили и чёрных ягод на первом плане. Тельное с умеренной кислотностью и мягкими, приятными танинами. Долгое, теплое послевкусие.
