Lot #775. Sine Qua Non Syrah Just for the Love of It 2002

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 100 RP.
"A dead-ringer (at least aromatically) for Guigal’s single vineyard Côte-Rôtie La Mouline, the 2002 Just For The Love of It is the greatest California Syrah I have yet tasted. A . . . blend of 96% Syrah, 2% Grenache, and 2% Viognier, it is nearly equal parts Alban, Bien Nacido, and Stolpman fruit with a small amount from both Shadow Canyon and White Hawk. It boasts a provocative perfume of creme de cassis, toast, blackberries, licorice, barbecue spice, and exotic floral scents. Extremely full-bodied, with fabulous intensity, great purity, awesome length, and a finish that lasts over a minute, this classic is a must purchase." Wine Advocate #154, Aug 2004
Notes: 2cm, Nicked, lightly scuffed label.
Lot Location: Orange County
