Qupé Winery Syrah Hilside Estate 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is 100% Syrah from the Hillside Estate “Z” block at Bien Nacido Vineyards. This is a heady, spicy and well-balanced version of this wine. The aroma shows white pepper, dried raspberry and an intriguing mocha character from the barrel fermentation. The flavors are concentrated without being heavy with bright fruit in the mouth and a long, zesty finish. This wine should age beautifully over the next 10-20 years.
