Sine Qua Non

We love rarity, and Sine Qua Non is rare by design. For every vintage winemaker Manfred Krankl not only makes new wine, but designs a new label and bottle style. Each bottle is a work of art with a name that seems to capture its essence. Benchmark is proud to have one of the largest collections of Sine Qua Non in the country, ready to deliver at your request.

Tasting Notes

WA100
The 2013 Grenache Jusqu` a l`os was produced from 79% Grenache from the 11 Confessions Vineyard along with 18% Syrah and 3% Petite Sirah, produced using 89% whole cluster and aged for around 38 months in 51% used oak, 6% new French oak and 43% concrete tanks (bottled December 6, 2016). It displays a medium to deep garnet color and rock star vibrant red currant and black raspberry scents with hints of licorice, mocha, Indian spices and peppered salami plus oh-so-fragrant and seductive touches of potpourri and chargrill. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and opulently fruited in the mouth, the alluring, velvety tannins support savory, spicy layers right through the long, mineral-laced finish. This is one drop dead gorgeous, femme fatale of a wine. 868 cases of 750 milliliter bottles, 223 magnums and 30 double magnums were made.
