A while back I went to a tasting with a SQN marsannne/rousanne/viognier blend.
Wine wasn't showing, awkward flavors on the palette. Too bright here, too dense there.
One guy at our table thought it might be in a "dumb phase". It tasted weird, just like the last one I drank 2 yrs before (bought 3). This was my first experience with the vaunted/hyped SQN brand.
Is SQN overhyped and not as good as they say? Manfred's reds better than his whites? Is "dumb phase" a bunch of BS?
3 questions in one, sorry!
