Ojai Stolpman Syrah 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

This is a really powerful and intensely flavored wine that is also lively enough to be engaging and delicious right now. The wine is made from a blend of all of our syrah vineyards, and the farming is strict-we aim for very low yields. For the last several vintages we have blended quite a bit of grenache and mourvedre in the blend, which gives the wine greater complexity and aromatic interest.

The vineyards at the Stolpman estate enjoy the warm days and cool nights of Ballard Canyon, which lies 25 miles from the Pacific Ocean in Santa Barbara County, on California’s Central Coast. The combination of climate, southern exposure, and limestone soils makes for a unique terroir suited to growing Syrah, Sangiovese, and Roussanne. The first vines were planted at Stolpman in 1992 by Coastal Vineyard Care Associates, who continue to farm and develop the 220-acre estate. We are constantly improving our vineyards according to the latest information available about viticultural techniques, technology, vine material and our specific terroir. Read less
