TN's: 06 Qupé Bien Nacido Hillside Estate Syrah

My good friend opened this for dinner. All I can is...WOW!

Initial pop was all about grilled meats, pork, smoke. Hour later, absolutely singing. The grilled meats would meld into a blue fruit note in mid sniff. A nice dry, chalky earth note. Lavender on rebreathe through nose.

Savory herbs (anise) on nose after two hours. The mouth feel is great. Long finish...

Obviously still young, but really hittin' stride.
