Australia-Qupe Syrah 2004 at Urbana

Rich and full-bodied syrah. Had with bluecheese, prosciutto and pear pizza at Urbana. Food and wine: not bad; venue: not good. Urbana=lame and contrived. Skip this place if you actually want a selection of wine and atmosphere.
The ad copy for this restaurant reads "Urbana Restaurant and Wine Bar: A destination in and of itself...where the subterranean restaurant, reminiscent of a Tuscan wine cellar brings to life an imaginitive menu..." Translation: basement Olive Garden with large selection of four wines, where khaki-cladded warriors and fans of the OC meet to discuss IT and HR (and Harry Potter).
