Qupé is dedicated to producing handcrafted Rhône varietals and Chardonnay from California’s sun-soaked Central Coast. The wine is essentially a blend of cool-climate Santa Barbara grapes and warm-climate Paso Robles grapes. The cool-climate fruit gives spice, acidity and balanced alcohol while the warm-climate fruit give softness, roundness, ripeness and more up-front fruit flavors and aromas. They employ traditional winemaking techniques to make wines that are true to type and speak of their vineyard sources, wines with impeccable balance that can be enjoyed in their youth. Where possible, vineyards are developed and farmed under the rigorous principles of Biodynamic Farming.
Loaded with ripe fruit,bright cherry flavors and a strong body, this wine is silky smooth and easy to drink. The fruit-forward aspects are balanced by acidity and cool-climate spiciness. According to Robert Parker: "Far superior is the generic 2006 Syrah Central Coast, which exhibits plenty of sweet cherries, an attractive earthy character, hints of licorice and roasted herbs,and a tasty, medium framework with pretty flavors as well as soft tannins. It is ideal for drinking over the next few years."
