    Boy oh boy, oh boy is this Syrah AMAZING! A few of us were recently treated to lunch at the Qupe/Au Bon Climat winery, and winemaker Bob Lindquist made sure that this wine was a featured part of the meal. I fell head over heels for it, enjoying it with roasted ham, a red quinoa salad and various cheeses. When Bob brought the bottle to our recent Friday night tasting, I was yet again impressed at how well the wine was showing. If you are looking for a really special bottle of domestic syrah, this is it! Stewed red cherry, sandalwood, hints of bacon and leather, with medium plus acidity (yes, at 12 years old! Such bright, fresh fruit!) and medium plus tannin. Well-balanced, beautiful integration, and clear excellence in winemaking. We bought this directly from Qupe, so get as much as you can fast!

    This was another favorite wine of ours from the ABC/Qupe lunch. Dense red cherry and blackberry, currant, plum, bacon fat, game, pepper, and well integrated tanins taking over all senses. I still can't wrap my head around how bright and youthful this 2001 Syrah is showing. Do not miss out on this wine for your next feast!
