Top 10 wines in the US press

We round up the top 10 wines in the US press last weekend.

Irene Virbila in the Los Angeles Times has written about “drinking Qupé Syrah for years but never knowing until now that (1) Qupé is pronounced “kyoo-PAY” (I’d thought it was koo-PAY all this time) and (2) it’s the Chumash Indian word for California poppy. Turns out winemaker Bob Lindquist has a poetic streak.”

She continued, “The 2009 Qupé Syrah from the Bien Nacido vineyard is a stunner. Lindquist has been working with the famed vineyard for more than 25 years and gets the best from the grapes. This Syrah has everything going for it: beautiful fruit, elegance and impressive balance.”

The Montreal gazette wrote about summer rosé and offers options for Chardonnay lovers.
Florence Fabricant of the New York Times wrote about the notion of cooling red wine gaining “some traction in recent years, and many restaurants now ask guests if they would like their bottle put on ice. But at Ruschmeyer’s, a seasonal hotel and restaurant in Montauk, N.Y., chilled red wine has its own section of the list.’

Lettie Teague of the Wall Street Journal interviewed Peter Gelbgeneral manager of the Metropolitan Opera in New York. He spends a good part of his summers in Europe, “scouting new musical talent and drinking wines from the Rhône and Provence. Or rosés from Sardinia.”

    um, last time i used one, razors cut, so not sure i want to experience a wine where “Tannins are like razors”. hurts just thinking about it…and the alcohol burn after razors on the palate must be excruciating.
