• Sine Qua Non 2015 Le Chemin vers L'heresie Grenache

The 2015 Grenache Le Chemin vers l'Hérésie is a total turn-on. Rich, ripe and voluptuous, but with considerable aromatic nuance from the 44% whole clusters, the 2015 has it all. Time in the glass brings out floral and red-toned Grenache varietal notes, and the flavors are remarkably vivid and intense today. Even so, readers will have to cellar this for at least a few years. All the elements are in place for the 2015 to develop into a spectacular wine. I can't wait to see how it ages. The 2015 is 75% Grenache, 13% Mourvèdre, 8% Touriga Nacional and 4% Petite Sirah, done with 44% whole clusters (for the Grenache and Mourvèdre).   96-98 Points Antonio Galloni, Vinous September 2017

This is another stellar set of wines from Manfred and Elaine Krankl. I found much to admire in the 2015s, some of which I tasted as preliminary blends (reviewed here) and others I saw from barrel as separate components that are destined for Sine Qua Non's higher range of wines that see extended time in oak. The bottled 2014s are just as brilliant from bottle as they were from barrel. Those wines are distinguished by an element of brightness to the 2014s that is hard to miss. Readers will find the 2013s much darker and more brooding in style. Lastly, Sine Qua Non fans will want to check out the 2014 Graciano, the first wine made from the Krankls' Third Twin Vineyard in Los Alamos. Antonio Galloni
