Winemaker's Notes

The same bottling as Qupe's 2005 Central Coast Syrah, but bottled for Michael Mina. Apparently they didn't want it all, so we got it at a killer price!

Critical Acclaim

"The 2005 Syrah Central Coast (20,000 cases produced) is a knock-out bargain for a Rhone Ranger offering. Dark ruby with loads of peppery berry fruit touched by roasted Provencal herbs, it possesses supple tannin, impressive purity and overall harmony, and a surprisingly long, layered finish. This beauty should drink nicely for 4-5 years."
