Qupé focuses on cool climate expressions of Rhône varietals along the Central Coast of Santa Barbara Country. Due to a their positioning, right next to the cool Pacific Ocean, they are set apart from most other regions of California. They are a proud member of the Rhone Rangers, America’s leading non-profit organization dedicated to promoting American Rhone varietal wines. Their founder, Bob Lindquist, was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2015 and the Californian poppy logo of the winery is now world renowned. The Syrah is sourced from various vineyards on the Central Coast starting as far south as the Santa Ynez Valley up to the Adelaida District in northern Paso Robles. TASTING: An immediately attractive deep purple colour leads into aromas of blackberry, blackcurrant, and coffee followed by a savory palate with a spicy smoky character and refreshing acidity. The balanced alcohol gives the wine a suppleness that makes it an easy drinker.
