This wine was just released in April of this year, and is a blend of 87.5% Grenache, 11% Syrah, and 1.5% Viognier, with 21% whole clusters used in the Grenache component. Seventy-eight percent of it came from the 11 Confessions Vineyard and the balance from Bien Nacido and the White Hawk. It is no measly wine at 15.5% alcohol, but it displays extraordinary berry fruit and kirsch notes intermixed with lavender and other floral components. Intense, full-bodied, voluptuously textured, and stunningly pure, with no real noticeable oak (21% new French oak was used, most of it the larger demi-muids), this beauty has put on weight and is showing additional complexity since I first tasted it.

The 2008 Grenache The Line explodes onto the palate with a rush of dark fruit, licorice and leather. It is a plush, muscular wine endowed with endless layers of flavor that build towards the multi-dimensional, eternal finish. I especially like the way the wine gains freshness and vibrancy as it sits in the glass. This is a striking, breathtaking wine from Sine Qua Non. The 2008 is a bigger, more powerful wine than its 2009 equivalent. In 2008 the blend is 87.5% Grenache, 11% Syrah and 1.5% Viognier. Roughly 21% of the wine (Grenache only) was fermented with whole clusters. The vineyard sources are 68% Eleven Confessions, 20% Cumulus, 9% Bien Nacido and 3% White Hawk. (AG) 97+
Wonderful aromas of crushed blackberries and blueberries with hints of flowers and minerals. Love the fruit aromas. Full-bodied, with soft and silky tannins and a long finish. Lovely balance of ripe fruit, minerals and flower. So delicious. Long finish. Wonderful wine.
Smooth, rich, complex and layered, offering juicy, racy red currant, raspberry and boysenberry notes, with shades of pepper and spice. Full-bodied, deep and focused, ending with a long, pure, elegant, engaging finish that keeps the fruit front and center. *Collectibles* (JL)
Opaque ruby. An intensely perfumed bouquet displays aromas of black raspberry, Asian spices, rose oil and lavender, with a bright suggestion of white pepper. Juicy and penetrating red and dark fruit flavors reach every corner of the palate and show very impressive depth and clarity. Rich but energetic on the finish, which repeats the sweet berry and floral notes. Wild stuff and surprisingly approachable already. (JR)
