1995 SQN Red Handed - 93 Pts!
Readers who love Rhone-styled wines must get on Sine Qua Non's mailing list in order to have a chance of latching onto a few bottles of the following vinous treasure. The limited production 1995 Red Handed is a blend of 43% Grenache 40% Syrah and 17% Mourvedre blend aged 18 months in oak of which 50% was new. This wine wants to be a southern California Chateauneuf du Pape and comes close to duplicating the character of a hedonistic southern Rhone. Sadly only eighty 6-bottle cases were produced. The color is an impressively saturated red/black/purple. The wine offers up aromas of cigar box fruitcake cedar pepper Provencal herb and glorious levels of kirsch and other black fruits. The influence of oak frames the wine rather than adding much to the aromas or flavors. Extremely full-bodied rich chewy and loaded with personality another wine that reflects its makers with a multi-dimensional palate and beautifully integrated alcohol acidity and tannin this wine has a singular personality and stupendous quality. Anticipated maturity: now-2014. Oh how I wish there were more small producers such as Elaine and Manfred Krankel. Take my advice - get on their mailing list! RP Showing incredible now and we think worth re-rating! Extremely Rare bottle to find these days with such limited production of this wine.'
