Sine Qua Non Aperta White 2018
38% Chardonnay 25% Viognier 22% Roussanne 9% Muscat 8% Petit Manseng
There is a vibrant pale golden color and most noticeably a liquid platinum texture. How do I know a liquid platinum texture? I know...trust me here. The Muscat puts a dab of perfume behind the ear. The whole is viscous, but delightfully proportioned. The nose also has ripe melon and the mouth is wide OPEN, but not aggressive. There is also honeysuckle. The wine spreads across your palate like the soft wings of a mystical bird. And then the liquid platinum finishes it all. If you need to know more, you got me beat. | Manfred Krankl for SQN
Held back in barrel longer than usual (24 months)... the 906 case 2018 Aperta is incredibly exotic (it reminds me of the La Dorian Condrieu from Guigal) with notes of tangerine, flower oil, apricots, and toasty nuances. With good acidity, full-bodied richness, and just flat-out gorgeous purity as well as balance, this singular white will benefit from just a year in bottle and I suspect evolve gracefully for a decade. | 97 points, Jeb Dunnuck for jebdunnuck.com

A wine list from Flask published in the early 1970s
Driving down Ventura Blvd in Studio City in the 1960’s has something in common with today, Flask Fine Wine & Whisky- Flask first opened its doors to the public in 1962. Decades later and it still remains a respected fixture in the Los Angeles community.
