TN: 2001 Qupé Grenache Purisima Mountain Vineyard (USA, California, Central Coast, Santa Ynez Valley)

Auction purchase. Cherry, prune, licorice, vanilla, black tea, orange peel, cinnamon, wet fur, underbrush, and smoke. Full bodied and bright with a zippy, cinnamon candy finish. Still some tannin left to resolve. Drink now and over the next several years (90+).

Hmmm… surprised this is still in such good condition. Says a lot about BobLindquist wines.

Still humming along :slightly_smiling_face:

Finishing off the bottle today. It certainly doesn’t suck but ymmv, chacun, and all that.
