Qupé Syrah Santa Ynez Valley Purisima Mountain Vineyard 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Dark oily spice aromas on the nose with some light smoky undertones and fine black fruit that shows some blueberry tones all come together nicely if a bit mysteriously. Showing nice tension on entry this delivers rather precise if rather ripe red and black fruit flavors with a nice salty tone and a clay mineral element on the palate. The dark fruit builds on the moderately long finish which shows a hint of caramel and vanilla sweetness. This is earthy and somewhat muscular but the finish leaves just a little to be desired. 89pts
