‘Utterly mind blowing and showing a spectacularly pure, fresh array of black currant, licorice, mineral, and flowers was the 2004 Sine Qua Non Syrah Ode to E! I continued to go back to this over the evening and it was never short of perfection in a glass, possessing a seamless, weightless texture, perfect balance, and a blockbuster finish that showed the wine’s class and structure. At almost 8 years of age, this still has an almost barrel sample like quality and shows almost no evolution. It should continue to shine for another two decades and is a tour de force in wine!’ – Jeb Dunnuck, 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.
