Lot #722. Sine Qua Non Grenache Estate Eleven Confessions Vineyard Ode to E 2004

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 100 RP.
"2004 Ode to E: This tiny cuvee (248 cases), a blend of 88% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 2% Viognier, was pure perfection on the morning in late June when I tasted it. It reminded me of a hypothetical blend of a 2001 Clos du Caillou Reserve and a 2005 Vieille Julienne Chateauneuf du Pape. The wine has a stunning ruby/purple color and a gorgeous nose of melted licorice, lead pencil shavings, jammy black cherries and black currants, incense, and a hint of smoked Peking Duck. Gorgeously opulent, full-bodied and already very complex, but still quite youthful, this is another strikingly haunting wine that was pure perfection and likely to last for at least another decade or more."

Provenance: The Irlandais Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
