The Barrel Climber Syrah 2012

#3 entry in the Syrah/Rhone flight last night. My favorite of the three, big and luscious but also a little finesse helped by a few years in the bottle. Still, it was dense and chewy with abundant black fruit. — 2 months ago

#3. 55% Zin, 45% Carignan, but the latter is firmly in control. Fun wine, great with the Pizzas and a nice QPR. Thanks to @romo for the tip on Martha Stoumen wines.

Goldschmidt Vineyards

Selection Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

#3 wine in cab flight and a real surprise to me as this was crowned WOTN. 11 of 24 in a secret ballot picked this one over 12 other entries. It wasn’t my favorite but it was damn good. In a nice drinking window, well integrated tannins and a layered, full finish. Flight winner and WOTN! — 2 months ago

Sami-Odi

Hoffman Dallwitz Little Wine IV Syrah

A rich plush Barossa Shiraz. Full bodied plum and berry flavours. A lovely fluid supple palate, the product of old vine fruit. Looking through my notes I see I have had Little Wine #2 #3 #5 and #6 but somehow missed this #4 Multi vintage comprising 2012 at 17%; 2013 at 44% and 2014 at 39%. All good years in the Barossa although Fraser would say some were more difficult than others. Vine age ranges from the 1990s with the oldest planted prior to 1912. Rich and delicious. — a month ago

Sine Qua Non

Syrah The 17Th Nail In My Cranium Eleven Confessions Sta. Rita Hills 2005

2005 Sine Qua Non "The 17th Nail in My Cranium" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah
Buckle your chinstraps folks because tonight we’re headed to the wine world equivalent of the summit of Mt. Everest. The absolute pinnacle in the Universe of wine for yours truly. The “it just don’t get any better than this” moment as far as grapes are concerned. Let me begin first with the name of this magic elixir. If memory serves, it was derived from a combination of the fact that this was the 17th Syrah produced in the Garage d’Or otherwise known as Sine Qua Non, and, in that same year, Manfred was felled by a rogue barrel requiring several staples to close the gash to his cranium, hence... "The 17th Nail in My Cranium"
The wine is a blend of 96.5% Syrah and 3.5% Viognier which was aged 38+ months prior to bottling. % alcohol. 4 hour decant at cellar temperature. Achromatic Raven black motor oil in my Zalto. Undoubtedly, the wines I find most compelling are of the “swirl, sniff and contemplate” variety, and this one might just set the benchmark. Explosive aromatic potpourri of blackberry jam, roasted coffee, fresh ground black pepper, graphite and spice with a faint floral arrangement lurking somewhere in the background. On the palate, sweet cherry compote and black currant with undertones of roasted game and black olives. A big, full bodied wine that’s light on its feet. A tightrope walker. A powerhouse with impeccable manners. Elegant and lithesome. A ballet dancer. Mikhail Nikolayevich Baryshnikov in his prime. Complex, with layers of flavors in beautiful, perfect harmony. Crosby, Stills & Nash singing “Suite Judy Blue Eyes.” The Beach Boys, “Good Vibrations.” Perfect balance. Pure, silky mouth feel. Immeasurable finish. And I mean that literally, as in it just continues on and on. Just utter perfection. A wine that is in fact so entirely perfect as to eliminate the need for a search for an alternative. The last word. To paraphrase The Bard, this wine “might (just) be the be-all and the end-all.”

@Mike R Not sure what your complaint is, the real circle of hell are my friends getting postcards, not allocations from SQN.
