Lovely nose, faintly animal, olive, gamy, leathery, and spicy with hints of green peppercorn on the nose. Somewhat light and elegant up front then picking up a faint edge of sweetness with just a hint of ashiness. This has a lovely texture with fine grained tannins, poppy seed accents to the slightly gamy bright red raspberry and loganberry fruit,and a very clean and fresh finish with small angular tannins. This is a lovely bistro styled syrah, it's just a little short at this point, but offers a superb blend of drinkability, variety character and subtle complexity in this style. 88pts

Winemaker's Notes:

While Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Pinot Noir make up the majority of red wine produced in California, there are a few producers (Qupe among them) working with Syrah, with some very good results. "The 2010 Syrah impresses for its length and textural finesse. This is a medium-bodied, feminine style of Syrah. The wine shows quite a bit of polish and overall harmony for its price point."Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
