External Reviews for Qupe Syrah Bien Nacido Hillside Estate Santa Maria Valley
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 **
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.
