Poker Face Syrah 2004

2004 Vintage. 15.5% Alcohol. Magnum shared with Stanley, Elena, and Chris at Top Winery in Paso Robles. Amazingly fresh, love mags. At peak now and just mind blowing. Loved the Top and Hood wines as well. Our thanks to Elena and Stanley for sharing a Crossed Fingers to compare and contrast. I didn’t get my request in before that sold out. Finished the mag with a great Mediterranean takeout dinner from Oasis in our room at the Seacrest hotel in Pismo Beach. — 3 days ago

Testa dei Cherubini Eleven Confessions Vineyard Grenache

2014 Vintage. 16% Alcohol. Needs a bit more time but extremely enjoyable. First time we’ve seen a white wax seal on any SQN. Part of Gail’s birthday celebration. With black truffles on house made fettuccine at Il Cortile in Paso Robles. First wine from that wooden six pack. After a day of tastings at Torrin, McPrice Meyers, Fulldraw, Booker and Benom, had to be a special bottle to stand out! Paso rocks! — 3 days ago

Lightmotif Roussanne Blend 2014

Powerful essence of freshly sun-baked hay infused with ripe melon, notes of caramelized pineapple. Richly built and round, doesn’t fit in any typical box for a white but simply breathtaking. 🙏 Jeff! — a month ago

Patine Syrah 2011

Wine #2 (I think) for Dave’s Zoom birthday. I never say this about SQN, but I was a touch disappointed by this one. Seemed pretty closed even after quite a while in the glass. My guess is that it needs many hours of decanted airtime and/or is in a transitional phase (my bet is on the former). Fortunately I have one or two more bottles of this - will try to be smarter about it next time! — a month ago
