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 brilliant bottle of wine…Seamless and elegant, with the house richness and texture, it gives up thrilling, floral-tinged aromas and flavors of red berry fruit, flower oil, spice, white pepper and licorice to go with a full-bodied, layered mouthfeel that keeps you coming back to the glass. While approachable now, it will have upwards of two decades of longevity.”

”An utterly vivid, compelling wine, the 2010 is supported by persistent notes of graphite-infused minerality that give the wine much of its energy. Seamless layers of blue/black fruit sit on that razor's edge of salinity in a Grenache loaded with class, finesse and pure refinement.” Vinous
