Tasting Notes For Sine Qua Non Eleven Confessions Syrah 2019

Sine Qua Non Eleven Confessions Syrah 2019 is a remarkable expression of this noble varietal, showcasing the artistry and expertise of the winemaker. With its impeccable balance, complexity, and depth, it offers an unforgettable tasting experience.

This Syrah opens with an enticing bouquet, bursting with aromas of ripe blackberries, blueberries, and black cherries, accented by hints of violets, lavender, and cracked black pepper. Layers of complexity unfold on the palate, revealing flavors of dark fruit compote, roasted meats, graphite, and anise, all seamlessly integrated with nuances of smoky oak and dark chocolate.

The wine's texture is opulent and velvety, with plush tannins that provide structure and depth without overpowering the palate. Vibrant acidity adds freshness and vitality, enhancing the wine's overall balance and allowing its myriad flavors to shine.

Critic Ratings

Jeb Dunnuck Review - Rated 99:

A borderline perfect wine is the 2019 Syrah Eleven Confessions Vineyard, and if there was a version of Guigal's Côte Rôtie La Mouline from California, this would be it. Red and black fruits, flowery incense, iron, cured meats, spice box, and background oak all define this sensational wine, and it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a layered, ultra-fine mouthfeel, no hard edges, and a great finish. It's already just about impossible to resist yet will benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age and evolve for 20-25 years. The blend is 82% Syrah, 13% Grenache, 3% Petite Sirah, and the rest Viognier and Gelber Muskateller, aged 39 months in two-thirds new French oak.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Rated 99:

The 2019 Syrah Eleven Confessions Vineyard is elegant and perfumed and includes 13.1% Grenache, 3.3% Petite Sirah and just a splash—0.8%—each of Viognier and Muskateller (a.k.a Muscat). It was crafted with 13% whole clusters, matured in 66% new French oak for around 39 months and was bottled in January 2022. This gorgeous Syrah opens over several days and never seems to diminish. It offers pure aromas of crème de cassis, tar, salami and ringing tones of violet. The full-bodied palate is incredibly velvety in texture, and despite its concentration and powerful style, it manages noticeable freshness and detail, with that magical violet perfume echoing across the long finish. This will develop gracefully in the cellar over the next two decades or more.
