Stolpman Syrah 2016

SKU 21827


Shows both perfumed fruit and savory depth, beauty and brains. Gushing boysenberry juice seeps through the finish, complimented by an outward-stretching mélange of fresh berry flavors. The wine is screamingly delicious and upfront fresh in its youth and I look forward to the coming development of secondary flavors with time in bottle.

Wine AdvocateStolpman's largest cuvée, amounting to some 4,400 cases, is the keenly priced 2016 Syrah Estate, which reveals a classic nose of blackberry, violets, rose petal, cracked pepper and grilled meat. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, expansive and juicy with an ample core of sweet fruit and good length and persistence. Some chalky tannins assert themselves on the finish, but it's already drinking well.

Wine EnthusiastCompact elderberry aromas and purple flowers mesh with savory touches of roasted beef and black pepper on the nose of this bottling, which is quite young. Black-currant and lilac flavors pop on the sip before the tightly woven structure temporarily hides them, though they will surely arise in the years to come. Drink 2020-2036.
