Mini-Review – Qupe Central Coast Syrah 2010

Want a nice California Syrah for well under $20….then keep reading!  Over the last couple of days, I had a chance to try Qupe Central Coast Syrah 2010 from a bottle and on tap.  I was pleased with both glasses of wine (enjoyed the wine from the bottle a little more) and really think it is a great find for the price. 

The wine has bright aromas of strawberries and herbs.  The clean palate features red fruit, black pepper, and hint of minerals.  This is definitely not a rich, jammy Syrah, but instead has more of a light-bodied, elegant character.  Simple yet simply good! (B+, $13, 13.5%)
