Central Coast Syrah 2011

I have been wanting to try this one for a while. slightly cooked blackberrys, black plums and anise with a hint of black pepper and thyme, and some clove, and white mushroom and savory black olive. Medium viscosity and body.
Medium Plus alcohol and noticeable medium tannins. Smoky yet smooth and delish.

Powerful with great depth and complexity. Super young too. Delicious Qupé. #qupe #santamaria #biennacido — 6 years ago

Gentle and complex at the same time. A hard intersection to hit but this wine delivers. Paired beautifully with braised ham hocks and navy beans.


Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard Grenache 2010

WOTN so far. Prune nose, dark cherries and licorice. Juniper berries on the finish. Great drinking wine. #qupe — 4 years ago

Bien Nacido Vineyard Santa Maria Valley Syrah 2011

Another Total Wine pick-up, as I root for my LA Clippers on game 2 of the playoffs. Bien Nacido Vineyards is a cool-climate vineyard on the central coast of California. The word Qupé (pronounced kyoo-pay') is the Chumash Indian word for California poppy. Qupé wines focus on Rhône style wines, most notably their Syrah. This one still drinks young, shelf it for the next 7-10 years. Love this brand - next time you are in Los Olivos, taste their wines! ~$24 | #qupe #biennacido #syrah

Out of mag and drinking perfectly right now. Sausage and tertiary notes are everywhere but the fruit is still very present. Perfect with roasted lamb. #biennacido #qupe #syrah #ipob #maturewinerules #biggerisbetter — 5 years ago
