Sine Qua Non The Monkey 2010
Tasted from the dining room of the lovely SS Legacy, thanks to generous passengers who see fit to bring their own favorite bottles along on a wine cruise. Sine Qua Non’s white Rhône-inspired blend dubbed The Monkey 2010 proved to be a honey-hued showstopper. Rife with peach pit, apricot kernel, orange pastille, smoke, buddha’s hand lemon, and warm spice. It’s a compact, fleshy, decadently creamy wine. Slightly hot on the finish, ending with flourish candied orange peel and mineral undertones.
