Tight and still in its youths, oily olives and not yet reach its drinking start

I'm always surprised by how much I like the wines from Sine Qua Non. Wouldn't pay the price tag, but it's delicious

2005 Vintage. Our last bottle in 750 ml format. No harsh tannins left now. Enjoyed with David last night.

Oh my. My favorite varietal made by my favorite winemaker. Life is VERY good. This long barrel-aged version of Manfred’s 2005 grenache is beyond description. Just stunning on every level. The only depressing aspect of this wine is that it’s my last bottle...but with my sister Pat visiting for Thanksgiving, it was totally worth it!
