Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 13.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

This is a wine that displays more of the spicy, racy and mineral aspects of syrah with a strong savory component and less of that jammy fruit. There is a freshness on the palate that carries through the fi nish. This is certainly the most "Northern Rhone-ish" of any of our Central Coast bott lings. If you're expecting a fruit bomb, you won't fi nd it here!

Critical Acclaim

"A light, bright, strawberry-scented syrah, this has a fresh, open feel to its red fruit flavor. Bob Lindquist makes some of the most consistently fine syrah in California, and this latest release is classical in its simple lines. Buy a case to enjoy this spring and summer once the cover comes off the grill."

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.

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.
