Stolpman 2018 Sun & Earth Red (Ballard Canyon)

Editors' Choice

This long-awaited project by the vineyard's resident manager Ruben “The Grape Whisperer” Solorzano impresses out of the gates. The blend of 80% Mourvèdre, 10% Syrah and 10% Grenache starts with rich aromas of baked black plum, rounded boysenberry pie, sprinkled baking spice and a touch of charred soy. Soft tannins grow more rigid toward the finish of the palate, where lush violet and scarlet-rose-petal flavors meet with peppery spices and vibrant acidity. Matt Kettmann
