Sine Qua Non

The Petition White Blend 2005

2005 Sine Qua Non “The Petition” white blend. 15.8% alcohol. “If All Else Fails.” The perfect day in Chicago. It's a still life water color, of a now late afternoon, as the sun shines through the curtained lace, and shadows wash the room. And we sit and drink our SQN (as Simon & Garfunkel & Sukley might say). Gorgeous yellow gold hues paint the glass. Brioche and buttered popcorn on the nose. Buttered burnt toast and petroleum along with stone fruits and waxy apricot on the palate. A viscous and unctuous masterpiece. Lingering finish. Good Lord I love these SQN whites! What else compares? I can’t think of another white I decant for several hours. 12 years young and evolving. I need to stockpile these wines. People drink em way too young. I sincerely believe his whites will rival Manfred’s reds in longevity. My favorites: The Bride, Twisted & Bent, The Hussy, Rien Ne Va Plus, HooDoo Man, Pearl Clutcher, and whatever comes next. The best of the best. — 3 years ago
