Sine Qua Non 2006 The Hoodoo Man

39% Roussanne, others are half-half Chardonnay and Viognier. Begin with Vioginer acacia bouquet and apricot fruity. The palate shows Roussanne’s chewy mouthfeel character and herbal nose. Besides, orange and grapefruit, pineapple, oak barrel, white pepper, and mineral. After 30 mins breathing, the creamy and vanilla of oaked chardonnay come up. The nose style keeps changing between Viognier, Roussanne, and Chardonnay. Sometimes can notice more Chardonnay and oak barrel, sometimes more Viognier bouquet, and sometimes more Roussanne herbal. Very interesting, charming, and attractive. Make me to be very patient to observe its changes.

Medium+ acidity, very lingering. Full body, although it is a 15.8% alc. (!!!), the after-palate is not so alc.-burning.

The only short is this bottle is probably not well cellared in the past years. Some oxidation note of Roussanne.

SY Rating: 19/20
