This is a pretty classic bottling of our Central Coast Syrah, our 31st consecutive vintage! The cooler climate grapes lend a savory, spicy character with refreshing acidity and balanced alcohol. The warmer climate grapes give the wine a more forward fruit character and add suppleness and earlier drinkability.


W&S 90 IWC 90 Pts - According to Wine & Spirits - A light, bright, strawberry-scented syrah, this has a fresh, open feel to its red fruit flavor. Bob Lindquist makes some of the most consistently fine syrah in California, and this latest release is classical in its simple lines. Buy a case to enjoy this spring and summer once the cover comes off the grill.

According to Josh Raynolds - Inky purple. Highly perfumed aromas of dark fruit liqueur, potpourri and incense, with a peppery spice quality emerging with air. Juicy blackberry and blueberry flavors are complicated by notes of allspice and violet, with a smoky quality sneaking in on the back end. Supple tannins build with air and give shape to the long, spicy, penetrating finish. Very fresh and very syrah, with fruit to burn.

According to Antonio Galloni - Qupe's 2012 Syrah Central Coast is laced with dark red and black stone fruits, cloves and lavender, all in a soft, fruit-driven style with no angular contours and terrific overall balance in its class. Expressive floral notes add nuance on the finish, but this is essentially a straightforward, juicy Syrah to enjoy in its youth. The Central Coast Syrah represents 50% of Qupe's production and also happens to be an excellent value. The fruit sources are about 60% San Luis Obispo and 50% Santa Barbara.
