Qupé Marsanne Santa Ynez Valley 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Bright gold. Aromas of pear skin, melon and lemon rind, with smoke and honey nuances adding complexity. Deeply pitched orchard fruit flavors display very good intensity and become smokier with air. Stains the palate without betraying any excess weight. The finish is gripping, spicy and very persistent. Shows impressive vivacity for a powerful wine. 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Spicy, zesty nose of herbs and flowers with light citrus. Like lemon meringue pie in a glass with hints of baking spice and herbs. Good mouthfeel and it lingers long. 93pts. 9/2/12 at tasting room
