Central Coast Syrah 2020

2020 vintage. First wine I’ve had from Qupé since founder Bob Lindquist no longer with this winery. This effort is a little sweeter and less earthy than 5-6 CC-designated syrahs I tasted under his Rhône Ranger hand over the last three decades. For the price, it’s pretty delicious tho. The single vineyard Qupé syrahs really set the benchmark for what was possible in the Central Coast area for syrah…and grenache…and marsanne…and viognier…and…Part of Bob’s legacy is raising the overall quality of (esp Rhône) varietals in the various CC areas, even with an entry-level effort such as this. For that, we should all be eternally grateful. Thank you, Bob Lindquist. 11.24.23 — 10 days ago

Central Coast Viognier Chardonnay 2019

We found the 50/50 Viogner/Chardonnay much tastier than the 100% Viogner.
Floral, as expected, but also lots of stone fruit.

Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard Grenache 2012

One of the oldest in my cellar, this 2012 Grenache was acquired from the Qupe wine club. Great after immediately opening and got even better after breathing. Would have liked a little more fruit upfront but balanced tannins provided a smooth and solid finish. — 2 years ago

Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard Grenache

Cool climate Grenache! Delicate, floral, very elegant. Snap it up. Probably can age 5-10 yrs, but oh so enjoyable right now. 75% Grenache, 25% Syrah from same Demeter certified vineyard. — 3 years ago


Alban Vineyard Roussanne 1993

An experience wine to know, love and appreciate the history and genius of Bob Lindquist in birthing Santa Barbara/Central Coast as one of the great wine regions of the world. Here is proof. At 22 years young, a revelation in ageable Rousanne From Alban vineyard. Reduced with some matchstick, the fruit is mostly cider apples, but the long oak toast and yeasty, buttery golden color and honeyed deliciousness make this a wine to remember. Most will dismiss it as lightly oxidized, nutty or flat. But, there is charm and intrigue and the right pairing will entrance those who love wines from Jurancon and appreciate aged whites.
Glad I have more to share in the years to come.
