Food Pairings for Qupe Syrah Bien Nacido Vyd
This wine is 100% Syrah from the Bien Nacido Vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley in the very northern reaches of Santa Barbara County. It comes from two distinct blocks at Bien Nacido: 54% from Block Eleven “Baja,” a hillside planted in 1997, and 46% from the X Block, planter to Riesling in 1973 - grafted to Syrah in 1986. The X Block is out oldest Syrah block at Bien Nacido and is now being farmed using biodynamic practices. The cool vintage yielded a very fragrant and spicy Syrah with lots of black and white pepper, lavender and deep berry fruit. This wine has plenty of depth and body but with a sleek, crisp mouthfeel that makes you keep wanting more.
