This wine is 100% Syrah from the Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard in the Edna Valley. It is a strict barrel selection of the best barrels from the vineyard in 2011.
Named for Lindquist’s mother, “Sonnie’s” is the top bottling from Qupé. The grapes are sourced from a biodynamically certified vineyard that Bob planted in 2005. The 2011 Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard ‘Sonnie’s’ Syrah shows tremendous depth and complexity with an exotic nose and a firm, focused texture. The toptier Syrah has a long future ahead of it.
