Sine Qua Non Syrah 'b-20' 2008

Wine advocate - 95: the 2008 syrah b-20 is a cool, inward wine graced with layers of beautifully delineated, chiseled fruit. This is a distinctly mineral, precise style relative to the more outgoing 2009, but both are striking. Floral notes add lift as the finish turns explosive with a burst of dark fruit, tar, licorice and crushed rocks. This is one of the more understated wines readers are likely to come across from sine qua non. It is gorgeous when given the time to open up. The b-20 is predominantly syrah, with 6% grenache and 2% viognier. About half of the grenache was fermented with whole clusters and the wine was aged in french oak (60% new) for 26 months. The vineyard sources are 52% eleven confessions, 18% cumulus, 18% bien nacido and 12% white hawk. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.
