Sine Qua Non’s winemaker, Manfred Krankl is one of the world’s best winemakers, and his incredibly hard to come by cult wines are made in a nondescript warehouse on ‘The Avenue’ in Ventura, between burrito shacks and motorcycle repair shops. Krankl’s fans include movie stars, iconic directors, famous composers, and each of his wines is given a new name and label in each vintage. This is an extremely rare opportunity to see what all the fuss is about.

"...a monumental effort that will stand toe-to-toe with the greatest Syrahs in the world….It offers an incredible array of sweet dark fruits, cassis, white chocolate, licorice and hints of bacon fat that meld perfectly with its full-bodied, seamless, layered and impeccably put-together palate. Given the wealth of fruit here, it’s amazing how this stays light, graceful and elegant, without ever seeming over the top in any way. While there’s no shortage of tannin here, they’re sweet and integrated, so feel free to enjoy this rock-star effort anytime over the coming two decades or more...

"These latest releases from Sine Qua Non and Next of Kyn are at the pinnacle of wine, and it’s simply impossible to taste through these and not be blown away." eRobertParker.com
