Smooth & Supple
Always good, light easy and a go-to wine that tastes like real wine yet is widely available.
This is a go- to favorite.
Earth & Spicy
This Syrah was perfect with a spicy barbecued chicken and steamed artichokes....... A hint of a Merlot earthiness but a very nice fruit and finish..cherry and pomegranite notes.
Light & Fruity
Not the best Qupe Syrah I have had but not bad. Lots of red fruit on the nose. Whiff of black pepper. Big flavor up front but fades quickly.A little one dimensional but highly enjoyable.
Very disappointing. Have enjoyed pre-2009 vintages that offered nice wine at a good price. The '10 is watery and thin. Must be what the winemaker meant when he said less jammy fruit. Without any fruit taste what you get is the alcohol and some nasty astringnent taste.
