Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

(50% roussanne, 23% viognier and 27% chardonnay; this wine does not yet have a name) Green-tinted yellow. A highly complex nose melds peach pit, yellow plum, dried flowers and botanical herbs, plus suggestions of minerals. Big and deep but silky, with smoothly integrated acidity carrying the wine's exotic fruit effortlessly. This palate-staining, exotic wine finishes very long and with noteworthy energy for its mass.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

The 2009 On the Lam is a blend of 48% Roussanne, 34% Chardonnay and 18% Viognier from the Eleven Confessions and Bien Nacido vineyards. Tangerine peel, white peaches, mango, lychee and passion fruit are some of the nuances that emerge from this beautifully layered white. Weekly lees stirring gives the wine much of its depth. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2015.

Not quite as stunning as a previous bottle but still fantastic. Feminine in style with spicy notes of tropical fruit, hazelnut, burnt caramel, and lemon zest. Definitely let this wine warm to room temp to allow it to bring out all it has to offer. Yum!

About This Producer


Manfred Krankl, an Austrian immigrant and Los Angeles restaurateur turned winemaker, is a reclusive and maniacally hard-working proprietor. His back-alley Ventura winery, dubbed the "garage d'or," has been described as "a junkyard (or the first or second level of hell)" and compared to a set from the movie "Mad Max" by Robert Parker. A true believer in radical viticulture, Krankl has worked with excessively low yields and maintains his winery and vineyards with meticulous attention to detail.

Since the debut "Queen of Spades" in 1994, original artwork and increasingly creative wordplay has adorned the label of each SQN wine. The wine itself has become a benchmark for Rhone varieties not just in California, but in the world. With 100-point scores in double digits, Robert Parker raves, "...the Grenache is the finest in the New World, the Syrah begs to be compared with the greatest of France, California, and Australia, and the white wine blends assembled by Manfred Krankl are as sumptuous and complex as the world's finest Chardonnays..." For all collectors, and particularly those that love Rhone-styled wines, SQN truly is something indispensable.
