Jeb Dunnuck writes: "I’ve been visiting with Sine Qua Non for a decade now, and I never cease to be amazed at the quality consistently coming from this address. In addition, Krankl somehow manages to deliver brilliance with just about any variety out there, and whether it’s Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Touriga Nacional, Roussanne, or even Petit Manseng, you can expect a truly riveting wine, as well as a wine with singular characteristics. Unfortunately, it’s all too common, particularly for those who don’t drink the wines often, to assume all California cult wines are over-ripe or heavy. The reality, however, couldn’t be more different, and great wines deliver intensity and depth while staying light on their feet and elegant. And these latest releases from Sine Qua Non are great wines."

Antonio Galloni writes: "It’s hard to get to the top. But it’s harder to stay there. Elaine and Manfred Krankl continue to make some of the most compelling wines in California. There is a bit more larger format oak in play, a greater use of whole clusters, and perhaps most importantly, minimal reliance on outside fruit than there was when I first started tasting here years ago, and yet the Sine Qua Non wines deliver the same richness and personality they always have. Readers should be aware that the Krankls are moving on from their practice of giving each wine a different name in each vintage, as the process for trademarking names had become too tedious and time-consuming."
