2008 Sine Qua Non The Line Grenache California 750ml
98 Points Jeb Dunnuck!
The 2008 The Line is another brilliant wine from this estate that’s evolving at a glacier’s pace. A blend of 87.5% Grenache, 11% Syrah, and 1.5% Viognier, with 21% whole clusters used in the Grenache component, this beauty came mostly from the 11 Confessions Vineyard with small amounts from Bien Nacido and White Hawk. Its deep purple color is followed by a massive perfume of black and blue fruits, lavender, ground pepper, and even a hint of kirsch. Full-bodied, powerful, and opulently textured on the palate, this complex, layered, brilliant Grenache will easily keep for another 10-15 years.
