    Reviews: 

    • Wine Advocate:  Deep garnet-purple in color, this wine has a very serious nose of game, fertile soil, crushed rocks and new leather over a wonderfully pure, well-defined core of crushed black cherries and ripe blackberries with wafts of unsmoked cigars and Sichuan pepper. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and built like a brick house, it has a solid backbone of firm, finely grained tannins and great acidity, finishing long and mineral laced.
    • Vinous:  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.

    Sine Qua Non has its own winemaking facility in Ventura, California not far from the Santa Barbara vineyards where the fruit is sourced from. In the last few years Manfred and his wife, Elaine, have begun creating their own vineyards dedicated to Rhone varietals. Their winemaking philosophy is to work in very small batches, gravity flow, natural yeasts (unless a fermentation problem is anticipated), long lees aging for the whites and repeated racking for the reds to open them up. This is a modified explanation of a very dedicated and artistic approach to winemaking. The wines are simultaneously very rich and elegant, superbly balanced and thoroughly harmonious with food, never overwhelming.
