Qupé Syrah Central Coast 2004, 86 points

2004 Qupé Syrah Central Coast  

(USA, California, Central Coast)

Ordered this Qupe Syrah in a tasting flight at a restaurant. The color was a typical Syrah. Dark in color with a touch of bright red around the edges. The nose was a little earthy with a mix of some fruit and veggies and a touch of mint. Some tobacco lingers on the nose as well. The first sips were solid and this wine has some good body and was a little silky. I got some jam on this wine with a little blueberries. However there was some earthy touch to this wine but it did not integrate with the fruits the way it should. The tannins were medium and mixed well. This Qupe Syrah had a French Bordeaux feel to it. Overall good for the 15 bucks a bottle and I would try it. Although, the wine went stale pretty fast in the glass. After about 45 minutes it felt old. Qupe Website
