Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
Reviewer, Robert Parker - The Hedonist's Gazette - I may have caught the 2000 Sine Qua Non Incognito at the perfect time (although it was also the wine of the night when I had it last fall in Napa). This is by far the greatest Grenache ever made in California. It will be interesting to see if some of the newer offerings from Sine Qua Non can give it a run for its money. This is pure, sweet raspberry and black cherry fruit interwoven with mineral, flower, and spice characteristics. The wine is full-bodied, opulent, extraordinarily pure, and beautifully textured. Next to the Cuve da Capo, the Sine Qua Non seemed refreshing and polished, whereas the Capo was massive, rustic, backward, meaty, and animal-like.
Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
The 2000 Incognito (a blend of 95% Grenache and 5% Syrah) is the finest Grenache-based effort the Krankls have yet produced. A black/ruby/purple color is followed by a lavishly exotic nose of super-rich as well as super-ripe black cherries, black currants, blackberries, licorice, pepper, and other heavenly delights. It is a wine of extraordinary opulence, texture, and purity with a finish that lasts 65+ seconds. Undeniably the greatest Grenache I have tasted from California, it is a reference point for what can be achieved by someone pushing the envelope of quality at all stages - viticultural, winemaking, and cellar work. Kudos to the Krankls. It should drink well for 10-15 years, but who can resist it that long?

Additional Information

Region :
Since the famous Judgement of Paris in 1976 California wines have unquestionably ranked among the best in the world. From the Anderson Valley in the North through Temecula Valley in the South, California vineyards grow dozens of wine grape varietals that produce wines of many different styles. The California wine industry has steadily gained ground since the 1960s (the industry took a major hit following Prohibition), but its roots date back over 200 years. Major grape varietals include Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc. View all our items from California
