Stolpman Vineyards Estate Syrah


This is a really cool property in Ballard Canyon, California that focuses on making a combination of classically styled wines along with some really unique offerings and a set of natural wines. Their “So Fresh” series is made without sulphur and the example of their fun natural side (while still being clean and fresh in style). Their “Combe” label is made in collaboration with renowned Sommelier and winemaker Rajat Parr.

This is how the winemaker describes the Estate Syrah – “Super giving and generous, the Estate Grown Syrah will be the cuvee that proves the magic of the 2018 growing season for all who taste it.  The first red wine release from our Ballard Canyon estate, it represents an unprecedented leap in “yum quotient” I couldn’t have dreamt possible when I took over the company 10 years ago.  The thick, tantalizing red fruit through the palate bears a strong correlation to the best 2018 St. Joseph Syrah bottlings we tasted on our team’s June 2019 trip to France.  I am thrilled we locked in the current fresh profile and bottled in early September, just over 10 months after harvesting.  The fierce red fruit bursting through the palate brings me back to the cellar of Gonon while the hint of tar brooding beneath reminds me of Monier Perreol.   As the wine opens in the glass, more soul begins to emerge out of the pure prettiness.  Not only is this wine a bombshell out of the gate, it will only begin to peak in 3-4 more years.”
