Top 10 wines in the US press

Qupé Syrah Edna Valley Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard 2010

05winelabel1-master180This week’s recommendation from Eric Asimov, writing in the New York Times, was this Syrah from California’s Edna Valley.

Having tasted 12 Californian Syrah’s, Asimov’s panel picked this as their top wine.

He said: “Our top wine, the 2010 Qupé, was from Bob Lindquist, one of California’s Syrah pioneers. The wine, from the Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard in Edna Valley, was beautifully balanced and already complex with gorgeous flavours of flowers, olives, smoked meat and minerals, though it would definitely improve with age.”

Price: $29
