Sine Qua Non

Dangerous Birds Sta. Rita Hills Syrah 2007

2007 Vintage. 15.5% Alcohol. Estate Syrah from Eleven Confessions vineyard in the Santa Rita Hills. Now at it’s peak and unfortunately our last bottle. Belated Gail’s birthday SQN as most of our “liquid assets” were at the WineBank that was closed except for emergencies and acceptance of shipments during our shelter-in-place. Now allowing appointments to put away our spring shipments from Top, Fulldraw, Aaron, Benom, and more. Massive liquid raspberry and red fruits on the nose and palate with a finish lasting 5 minutes. Amazing wine and definitely birthday quality. — a month ago

Never had it, @Ron R. Seen it pop up on here a number of times and it’s always rated highly. Should I seek it out?

Big-time, @Brandon Thurber. I think rosé is all they do. QPR is of the scale. Great shipping deal, too.

Chopping Block Paso Robles Syrah Blend 2016

WNH event number 7...virtual tasting with @Connor McMahon from Fulldraw Vineyards.

Loved the story behind this new Paso producer. If you’re looking for Paso Rhône wines, check out Fulldraw. Pedigree, quality, story...all there. Many thanks to Connor for joining us tonight!

46% syrah, 28% Grenache and 26% Mourvèdre. After I opened, I put it straight in the decanter. Shortly after, I gave it a try and it was very aromatic...crunchy, sweet, dark fruits. Mourvèdre shows beautifully. More depth than being totally floral, but more elegant than being totally fruit driven. Blue and black candied fruits accompanied by dark chocolate, bacon fat and charcoal. I followed it over 4+hrs and it had a bit of a rollercoaster evolution...very energetic at pop and pour, slightly closed down in between, and hit apex around hour 3. The tannins softened substantially with notes of licorice, dried blackberries, chargrilled blueberries and a finish highlighted by peppered strip. For me, this wine epitomizes Paso GSM blends. Inaugural vintage. Nicely done!

@Shay A : how many years to be its best?

@Bryan Kesting : I’d say maybe 2-3yrs for a good bit of fruit, or 3-5 if you want a better balance of primary and secondary type notes. It sure was good with a 3-4hr decant though.

Enjoyed this virtual tasting so much...complete wine that needs time in the bottle to come into its full potential.

Interpretation Paso Robles Tempranillo 2017

Had my first bottle a couple months ago,
Great nose to it, but give it more time. This is no mega purple loaded Austin Hope. Real wine needs real time.

TEMPRANILLO
60% new French Oak
Coming from the original 2007 planting on our vineyard, rumor has it this big, rich, tannic clone of Tempranillo was backpacked in from Spain...but you didn't hear it from us. With a chalky mineral mouthfeel, it's complex aromatics will keep you guessing on what the
