Something of a geranium floral nose with a lemony hint. Initial mouth sensation is tart, then drying tannin. I think this wine is quite broad shouldered with very little fruity flavor--maybe something like blueberry. This is my kind of wine. US$33.99 at the Wine Club in Santa Ana in 2007.

One of my all time favorite reds. I first discovered this winery's reds through staying at the Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur. They included a bottle with every room. Fabulous, rich flavors - great to just drink with nothing at all...

The largest scaled wine in the lineup the 2008 Qupi Syrah Bien Nacido Hillside Estate is a ripe fleshy effort that packs a solid dose of fruit in its structured edgy frame. Smoky meaty and dense with a lavender plum and currant driven core this beauty flows onto the palate with medium to full-bodied texture solid concentration good acidity and ripe tannin. It needs another 2-3 years to come together and will have over a decade of prime drinking after that. - Jeb Dunnuck Rhone Report The.

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

Built more on acid than on tannin, this is a light-bodied, easy-to-drink Syrah that shows all of the requisite varietal characteristics: smoke, meat and pepper alongside crisp red berry flavors. Nicely complex; an intellectual wine rather than a hedonistic one.

Deep ruby-red. Aromas of black cherry, black licorice and menthol. Superripe yet rather pinot-like flavors of red fruits, with tart pomegranate and cranberry notes and palate-shocking acidity. But this very young, tightly wound wine also possesses the density and solid structure to develop in bottle. Finishes with hints of tart and dried fruits. Also tasted: 2001 Roussanne Edna Valley. ** Only 3 in Stock **

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points Josh Raynolds (International Wine Cellar): Glass-staining ruby. Vibrant aromas of cassis, cherry-cola, candied licorice and Asian spices. Juicy, supple and sweet, with intense cassis and red berry flavors complicated by notes of lavender, licorice, fresh herbs and black pepper. Very syrah in character. Bright acidity adds cut to the long, gently tannic, penetrating finish. (Nov/Dec 2012)
