Rated a Perfect 100 Points by Robert Parker's Wine Advocate in 4 separate tastings!

Rated 100 Points by Robert Parker (Wine Advocate)

2004 Ode to E: This tiny cuvee (248 cases), a blend of 88% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 2% Viognier, was pure perfection on the morning in late June when I tasted it. It reminded me of a hypothetical blend of a 2001 Clos du Caillou Reserve and a 2005 Vieille Julienne Chateauneuf du Pape. The wine has a stunning ruby/purple color and a gorgeous nose of melted licorice, lead pencil shavings, jammy black cherries and black currants, incense, and a hint of smoked Peking Duck. Gorgeously opulent, full-bodied and already very complex, but still quite youthful, this is another strikingly haunting wine that was pure perfection and likely to last for at least another decade or more.

Rated 100 Points by Jeb Dunnick (Wine Advocate)

Leading off with the Grenache-driven efforts, and easily the greatest expression of the variety I’ve ever tasted from California, the 2004 Ode to E (Grenache) is mind-blowing stuff that will stand toe-to-toe with the greatest Grenache-based wines ever made. Coming from Manfred’s Eleven Confessions Vineyard and comprised of 88% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 2% Viognier, it sports a still vibrant purple color to go with off-the-hook aromas and flavors of creme de cassis, melted licorice, graphite, smoked herbs and assorted meaty nuances. Full-bodied, seamless and elegant, with incredible purity and a perfect texture, it can be consumed anytime over the coming decade.
