'The perfect 2005 Syrah Atlantis Fe 203-1a,b,c is a blend of 93% Syrah, 5% Grenache, and 2% Viognier, with 25% whole clusters. Whereas the Ode to E is all from the Eleven Confessions Vineyard, this cuvee is a combination of 43% from the estate vineyard, 28% from the White Hawk Vineyard, 21% from the Alban Vineyard, and 8% from the Bien Nacido Vineyard. The good news is there are nearly 1,500 cases of this recently released offering. An extraordinarily flowery nose interwoven with scents of blueberries, blackberries, incense, and graphite soars from the glass. Although not the biggest or most concentrated Syrah Krankl has made, it is one of the most nuanced, elegant, and complex. It remains full-bodied, but builds incrementally on the palate, and comes across as elegant and delicate, especially when compared to many California Syrahs. Nevertheless, the intensity is mind-boggling, and the finish lasts for nearly a minute. 2008 - 2023' – Robert M. Parker, Jr., Wine Advocate, 100/100

Producer information Sine Qua Non, commonly referred to as SQN, is a direct translation of the Latin phrase "Absolutely Indispensable". Founded in 1994 by Manfred and Elaine Krankl, SQN is now one of the most famous wine producers in California. Their focus is on Rhône grape varietals - primarily Syrah, Grenache, Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier. Their two flagship varietals being Syrah and Grenache. With most of their vineyards based in Santa Barbara, SQN's existence is a direct contraction to the common notion that the best Californian wines are only made in Napa Valley. Known for their low yields, high prices, and high demand; any consumer who manages to get their hands on a bottle should consider themselves incredibly lucky. This cult wine producer has never made a direct sequel to any of their wines - every vintage has a unique label and name. 16 of their released wines have been given a perfect score by The Wine Advocate.
