    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine represents about half of the wine we made in 2009. It is a blend of 98% syrah, 1% tempranillo and 1% mourvedre; it is 70% cool climate fruit (45% Santa Barbara County, 25% Edna Valley) and 30% warm climate Paso Robles; the vineyards are French Camp (Paso Robles) 30%, Sawyer Lindquist (Edna Valley) 25%, Bien Nacido (Santa Maria Valley) 24%, Chabot (Santa Barbara County) 18%, Ibarra-Young (Santa Ynez Valley) 2.5% and Alisos (Santa Barbara County) 0.5%. This is a classic Central Coast syrah, combining 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...in fact we just received an email the other day from a customer telling us how much they enjoyed a bottle of our 1989 Syrah-Central Coast! Best to drink it though and save your cellar space for our single vineyard syrahs.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bob Lindquist made 17,000 cases of this vibrant syrah, a wine that can play in the big leagues without the usual price to match. It runs on cool spice, a peppery spark against a quiet rumble of chocolate. The texture is light, striking a balance that will work with braised pork.

    Expected a bit more because I ahd heard good things about the Qupe Syrah. Not really worth the price to me. Had a meat spaghetti with it.
