  • 2007 Sine Qua Non Body & Soul – USA, California (5/26/2016)
    WIML94

    Tasted non blind.

    Light yellow to yellow color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of camphor, lychee, paraffin and mixed tropical fruits. Flavors of apricot core, kumquat and minerals. Medium acidity, full bodied. Drink or hold believe it or not. Plenty of life left in my humble opinion.

    My last bottle. Hate to see it go. Upgrading my score a bit with room for improvement. (94 points)
