2014 SYRAH, Qupé. Central Coast, California (Half Bottle)

Bin:  899

Alcohol percentage:  14%

Area:

Qupe are based in Santa Barbara County, a (relatively) cool climate area north of LA, where Burgundian and Rhone varieties predominate. Made famous by the film ‘Sideways’ which helped kickstart the trend for Pinot and Syrah over Cabernet and (especially) Merlot. This example is actually a blend from around the area.
Sadly, Bob Lindquist has now sold the brand, so this is one of the last few ‘real’ Qupe wines (by Bob, in his winery shed, that he shared with Jim Clendennen of Au Bon Climat).

Grape variety:

100% Syrah from 12 different vineyards in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo.

Maturity potential:

Drink within first 5 years.

Old Bridge rating:

Delicious ripe, juicy Syrah – half way between the French and Aussie extremes.
