One of the original 'Rhone Rangers', Bob Lindquist's Qupé Vineyards pioneered the planting and cultivation of Rhone Valley grape varieties in the Central Coast of California some 30 years ago. A California resident since childhood, Bob named his winery 'qupé' ( kyoo-pay), to honor the Chumash, the indigenous people of the Golden State's Central Coast and Channel Islands.
This classic Qupé Central Coast Syrah combines the spice and acidity of the cool climate grapes with the forward fruit of the warm climate grapes. It has the balance to be age worthy but it's too tempting not to open it and drink immediately! Spice and racy mineral aspects blend with balanced red fruit and lengthy freshness on the palate.
