Stolpman Estate Syrah Santa Ynez Valley 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): Freshly cut flowers, dark red cherries, mint, licorice and violets are alive in the glass in Stolpman's 2011 Syrah Estate. One of the most refined, polished wines I have ever tasted from Stolpman, the 2011 Syrah impresses for its exceptional balance, length and vibrancy. This is a fabulous showing. The low 2011 yields and tiny berries resulted in a wine endowed with fabulous purity. Drink: 2013-2023. (Jul 2013)

We are constantly improving our vineyards according to the latest information available about viticultural techniques, technology, vine material and our specific terroir. Read less
