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...

(a blend of this winery's syrah blocks; includes 3% viognier): Good dark red. Aromas of blueberry, crushed black raspberry, brown spices, smoked meat, mocha and cocoa; smells like a northern Rhone wine from granite soil. Firm and energetic in the mouth, offering a nice balance of fresh dark fruits and smoky minerality. Bright acidity and a note of black pepper give the palate a zesty quality. Finishes lightly saline, juicy and persistent, with spicy tannins. (ST)
