Description:

Sine Qua Non (Turn the Whole Thing) Upside Down Grenache 2009 (3 bts)
California
"The 2009 Grenache Upside Down emerges from the glass with layers of dark red fruit as it sweeps across the palate. There is an inner sweetness and sheer depth that make the 2009 compelling. The 11% Syrah and 5% Mourvedre make themselves heard clearly in adding layers of depth and pure richness. Tar, anise and graphite meld together on the rich, dramatic finish. This is a striking wine endowed with tons of pure textural dimension. The 2009 was sourced from Eleven Confessions (72%), Cumulus (22%) and Bien Nacido (6%) vineyards. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2021." A. Galloni for R. Parker, 96+ pts. 08/12
3 bottles
Estimate $500-700
