Bien Nacido Hillside Estate Syrah 2011

From magnum. 1st day was all about high toned red fruit, herb, secondary characteristics. Now the plum and berry are emerging on day 2 and I’m enjoying it much more. Has more life in it. 13% alcohol. Vinous 92. — 7 days ago

@Jason and Jennie Qupé founder Bob Lundquist sold the winery in 2018 and is doing his thing now under the Verdad & Lindquist Family Wines name in the same area. Haven’t had any of the recent Qupé wines and only 4-5 of Bob’s newer wines since the sale.

@ Jason and Jennie If you liked that Qupé Syrah, I’d check out Ojai Vineyards Syrahs for more Syrah goodness.
