Stolpman la Cuadrilla 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Profit shared with their vineyard crew, named after the vineyard crew, the self named vineyard crew, 62% Syrah, 30% Sangiovese, 8% Grenache Only neutral oak, no whole cluster, different label artwork each year Dark and a bit tight, meaty, and tarry on the nose with some mintiness, black currant and a little spicy black fruit with a nice hint of wood spice adding some detail, and a hint of pepperiness. Bright and juicy upfront, this shows fine red fruits on the palate that are all about tart raspberry and strawberry fruit. there’s a fine astringent note to the tannins, and while this is big it’s fairly light on its feet with a real mouth cleansing freshness and astringent red fruit on the backend. A fun if rambunctious wine. 89pts

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
