Stolpman Red Blend Santa Ynez Valley la Croce 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Working closely with one of Italy's best consulting winemakers Mr. Alberto Antonini Stolpman Vineyards has produced this delicious blend of 50% Syrah and 50% Sangiovese. La Croce brings the vibrancy nerve and tannic strength of Sangiovese and the lush enveloping dark wild fruits of cooler climate Syrah together in a wine of great complexity. La Croce is fermented in small French oak barrels producing wines with incredibly rich colors and persistent flavors and tannins as well as layers of mocha chocolate strawberries coffee and berries that are generous and concentrated.

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
