The 2010 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyard Hillside Estate offers classic cool-climate notes of pepper, green olive, leather and spice, as well as a core of ripe blackberry and raspberry styled fruit. Medium+-bodied, nicely balanced and with integrated acidity, it has outstanding mid-palate density, plenty of tannin and solid finish. Made from 100% Syrah that spent 20 months in 50-60% in new French oak, it will benefit from short-term cellaring and have 15+ years of overall longevity. (JD)
Ruby-red. Pungent, high-pitched cherry and licorice scents pick up spiciness with air. Suave, very deep red fruit preserve flavors are nicely supported by juicy acidity. Dusty tannins come on late and carry through the long, focused finish. This graceful, energetic syrah checks in at a relatively low 13.5% alcohol. (JR)
***Cellar Selection*** Classic Qupe Bien Nacido Syrah—dry, full-bodied and ageable. It has complex flavors of blackberries, crisped bacon, black pepper and cedar. The mouthfeel is velvety and smooth, with young, firm tannins. Give it a vigorous decant if you want to drink it before 2016.
