Just For the Love of It 2002 Sine Qua Non
|Brand||Sine Qua Non|
Sine Qua Non can be counted as one of the most extravegant, but also diverse and beautiful wines of the world. The Austian, Manfred Krankl, founded this winery in 1994. Every wine has a unique, but not wine related name, and are without exception very special. The 'Just For The Love Of It' contains of 96% Syrah, 2% Grenache and 2% Viognier. We have had the pleasure of drinking this wines on two occasions, and both times we rewarded these wines with a score of 10 out of 10! A legendary wine and a classic.
A dead-ringer (at least aromatically) for Guigal’s single vineyard Cote Rotie La Mouline, the 2002 Just For The Love of It is the greatest California Syrah I have yet tasted. A one-thousand case blend of 96% Syrah, 2% Grenache, and 2% Viognier, it is nearly equal parts Alban, Bien Nacido, and Stolpman fruit with a small amount from both Shadow Canyon and White Hawk. It boasts a provocative perfume of creme de cassis, toast, blackberries, licorice, barbecue spice, and exotic floral scents. Extremely full-bodied, with fabulous intensity, great purity, awesome length, and a finish that lasts over a minute, this classic is a must purchase.
