About Stolpman Vineyards
Tom and Marilyn Stolpman founded this Central Coast winery in 1990. The dry-farmed vineyard plantings here are one of the great viticultural stories of California...

(from Stolpman's older syrah blocks, now 17 years old, according to winemaker Sashi Moorman): Bright ruby. Deeply pitched aromas of black cherry, violet and licorice. Brooding and quite primary in the mouth; the least expressive today of this winery's 2009 syrah offerings. The wine's saline impression of density is leavened by good limestone energy. The tannic spine of this rich, layered syrah calls for three or four years of patience. (ST)
