TASTING NOTES

"The 2004 Flying Pig is 57% Cabernet Franc, 28% Merlot, and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in French oak, 60% new. Purple-colored, the perfume is marked by the Cabernet Franc with its herbal/menthol notes. In addition, there is an abundance of pain grillé, spice box, licorice, and black currants. Velvety-textured, the wine is super-rich, layered, and showy on the palate. There is plenty of ripe tannin to accompany the sweet fruit, and terrific length. Allow 6-8 years in the cellar and drink this brilliant effort through 2040. If that is not enough, I tasted a barrel sample of a 2005 Grenache which rivals the best grown in the USA. Could it be that before long Manfred Krankl of SQN will be known as the Christophe Baron of the Central Coast?" Jay S Miller, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #172, August 2007

"Supple and spicy, with a dill and green peppercorn edge to the silky-textured currant and prune flavors. This is a complex wine that refines itself into a fine beam as the finish lingers well. Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. 167 cases made." Wine Spectator
