2001 Sine Qua Non Ventriloquist Central Coast (750ml)

SKU: 906093-0817-103
United States
"88+ out of 100 - 2001 Ventriloquist: This was the only wine in the entire tasting that refused to open and fully reveal itself. It is a blend of 82% Grenache and 18% Syrah, with much of it coming from the Alban Vineyard and the balance from the Stolpman Vineyard and the Shadow Canyon Vineyard further north. I would liked to have had a crack at another bottle, but this wine came across as very tightly knit, with far higher acids, giving the wine a more austere and tart quality. It did possess some nice, attractive black fruits, damp earth, spice box and hints of licorice and pepper, but the austerity of the tannins, which seemed exaggerated by the wine's acidic framework, made this wine pleasurable but standing out as the weakest effort from Sine Qua Non in the last decade." - Robert M. Parker, Jr., Wine Advocate
