Expert Reviews

95 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2012

(a selection of the best 300-liter barrels):  Bright ruby-red.  Kaleidoscopic nose offers scents of dark berries, smoked duck, mocha, brown spices, brown sugar and espresso; for the second consecutive vintage I was reminded of Guigal's La Landonne.  Lush, fat, seamless and very deep, with harmonious ripe acidity framing the pliant dark berry and spice flavors.  The powerful, extremely long, fruit-driven finish coats the palate with dusty tannins and a note of violet face powder.  Wonderfully harmonious and vibrant wine, and distinctly lower in alcohol at 14.1% than the outstanding 2009 (15.3%).  (ST)

Syrah is not my favorite grape - but this wine is fantastic.
Stolpman rocks!

Full disclosure: this is my third Stolpman Syrah, and my bias is undeniable. I have tasted 2009 Syrah Hilltops, 2010 Syrah Originals, and now this 2010 Angeli Red. Even though the entry-level 2010 Syrah Originals is not on par with the other wines referenced here, in all of those the terroir of Santa Ynez Valley comes through in the glass. Terrific concentration invariably elevated by the olfactory elements.
Terrific Syrah, again by Sashi

Dark brooding in glass, the fruit fills the air. Cherry plum and berry all blend well. Young but had to try with 4 in reserve.

About California

It is remarkable that an industry essentially less than a half-century old could capture the attention of the American wine-buying public to the degree that California has. Powerful consumer interest in California wine is driven by two major factors. The more obvious reason is that California's best wines, which come from grapes grown in...
