Left this beautiful young lady in a decanter for 3 1/2 hours. I should leave it until Thanksgiving. Almost 4 hours in and she is just really thinking about unwinding. Super tight with beautifully elegant tannins. Loads of fruit, earth and spice. Just keep layering out. I won't touch another one for a decade.

Wow, now this is baby killing. Perhaps the most tannic SQN I’ve tasted. Needs 5 more years to settle down.

2011 Sine Qua Non Patine Syrah. My start to the Holiday weekend. This wine has sort of gotten a bad rap because it's not a Parker 100 pointer, so although the posers might not appreciate it,true SQN aficionados will hone in on the reasons we all love SQN. The expressive nose, the beautiful texture, the perfect structure. The impeccable expression of Syrah. Toss the reviews. Trust your palate. If you do, my guess is that you will enjoy this wine as much as I do. 6 hour decant. Typical SQN nose of violets, anise and berries. Mouth-coating chocolate covered cherry mid palette. Lush texture. Concentrated and layered. Wonderfully lingering finish. Who's the Man?
