Sine Qua Non Roussanne Chardonnay Omadhaun & Poltroon 1996 Item #: 893222 Description: The blockbuster whites Sine Qua Non is now producing are a blend of Roussanne and Chardonnay, with the former varietal dominating the blend in both 1996 and 1997.
The massive, dry 1996 Omadhaun Poltron's 15.2% alcohol is well-concealed beneath thisfull-bodied wine's glycerin and unctuous texture. The knock-out nose of honeyed citrus and rose petals is followed by a chewy, remarkably pure, dry wine oozing with extract. I suspect it will become even more civilized with 12-18 months of bottle age, but I would opt for drinking it over the next 2-3 years.
