Qupe Estate Bottled Syrah Bien Nacido Hillside Estate 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is 100% syrah from the Z block at Bien Nacido vineyard. Z block is the original custom hillside block at Bien Nacido, planted exclusively for growing cool climate syrah southwest facing slope to get plenty of sun and poor soil that drains well and stresses the vines.

Qupé is dedicated to producing handcrafted Rhône varietals and Chardonnay from California’s Central Coast. We employ traditional winemaking techniques to make wines that are true to type and speak of their vineyard sources. Our goal is to make wines with impeccable balance that can be enjoyed in their youth, yet because of the good acidity from cool vineyard sites can also benefit from ageing. We are committed to sourcing grapes from some of the best and most prestigious vineyards in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties. Qupé Wine Cellars is located on the Bien Nacido Vineyard in Santa Maria, California. Qupé shares a production facility with Jim Clendenen from Au Bon Climat, and together they have a production and sales support staff. Jim Adelman is the General Manager and also shares winemaking duties. Once a year, during harvest, visiting winemakers and wine professionals with various backgrounds (many from different states and countries) in the wine business come to work with Bob and Jim at the winery to share techniques and ideas. Focusing on fruit grown in the Central Coast Appellation of California, Qupé produces Rhone varietals and Chardonnay. A majority of Qupé’s wines (about 50%) are made from grapes grown on the Bien Nacido Vineyard, where the Syrah and Chardonnay are planted and grown to Bob’s specifications. In addition to Bien Nacido, Qupé also farms (using organic practices) a 14 acre vineyard in Los Olivos called “Ibarra-Young Vineyard.” The balance of the Qupé wines are made from grapes grown at various vineyards in the Central Coast appellation of California. Bob and his wife Louisa have recently purchased an 80 acre vineyard site in the Edna Valley which they began planting in the spring of 2005. This vineyard will be developed and farmed under the rigorous principles of Biodynamic Farming. Read less

The 2007 Syrah Bien Nacido Hillside Estate is a big wine loaded with dark plums, blueberries, tar and licorice. There is plenty of depth in this opulent, full-throttle wine, but not much beyond that. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2017. - Antonio Galloni Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Syrah wine from California in USA. 2007 Qupe Syrah Hillside Estate Bien Nacido Vineyard 750ml
