Sine Qua Non The Gorgeous Victim Grenache 2017
|Brand||Sine Qua Non|
Tasted from bottle, the deeply hued 2017 Grenache The Gorgeous Victim checks in as 76% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre, 9% Syrah, and the rest Petite Sirah and Viognier. This deep purple Grenache boasts a savory, almost bloody style that delivers full-bodied aromas and flavors of kirsch, blackberries, ground pepper, graphite, and iron. It has loads of depth, a stacked mid-palate, and enough tannins to warrant 2-4 years of bottle age. This sexy, perfumed, complex, singular beauty will drink beautifully for 20 years or more.
The 2017 Grenache The Gorgeous Victim is bright, dense and explosive. Sweet floral notes, spice, red cherry and pomegranate all run through this striking, sumptuous Grenache. A wine of superb aromatic precision and nuance, the 2017 is off the charts beautiful. The 46% whole clusters, mostly from the Grenache, add striking top notes, while the purity of the fruit is simply mind-blowing.
