Food Pairings for Qupé Syrah Santa Maria Valley X Block 25th Anniversary Bien Nacido Vineyard
Notes on the Qupe Viognier Ibarra-Young Vineyard Santa Ynez Valley 375ml 2006 : 375ML Half BottleWINEMAKER NOTES: Viognier grapes are wonderfully aromatic in the vineyard and many winemakers are seduced by those aromatics and pick too ripe resulting in high alcohol, flat tasting wines. I like those aromatics too, but I prefer balance, acidity, alcohols under 14% (the '06 is 13.7%) and the minerality that accompanies this style. This is not a wine to age although it can. I recently pulled out a 1994 for Yves Cuilleron and François Villard and they were impressed. I like viognier when it's young and fresh...drink this before the 2007 comes along.
