Lot #630. Sine Qua Non Syrah Estate Eleven Confessions Vineyard A Shot in the Dark 2006

Description: Consists of 3 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 100 RP.
"The soon-to-be-released 2006 A Shot in the Dark is composed of 96.5% Syrah and 3.5% Viognier from the 11 Confessions Vineyard in the cool Santa Rita Hills. Performing better from bottle than it did from barrel, this prodigious red exhibits incredibly velvety tannins, a seamless style, and no noticeable oak (which is remarkable given the fact it spent 32 months in barrel). Dense purple to the rim with an extraordinary perfume of blueberry pie, blackberries, soy, Asian spices, and hints of forest floor and charcoal, this is a complex, rich, seamless, well-balanced tour de force in winemaking." Wine Advocate #190, Aug 2010
Provenance: The Mont Blanc Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $1,900
