Stolpman Vineyards La Cuadrilla 2017
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Ynez Valley|
The 2017 La Cuadrilla is a blend of 55% Syrah, 27% Sangiovese and 18% Grenache. It has a medium ruby-purple color and has pretty aromatics of fresh red cherries and cranberry with sliced blueberry, lilac, black cherries, warm earth and meaty/spicy touches in the background. Medium to full-bodied, it gives up loads of wonderfully ripe fruit in the mouth with firm, grainy tannins and juicy freshness, finishing long with gobs of sweet fruit. Yum! 4,400 cases produced. All the profits of this wine benefit Stolpman's full-time vineyard crew.
Dense aromas of baked black plum, lilac and cherry cola show on the nose of this red blend that is dedicated to and managed by the winery's vineyard crew. Cola, roasted fennel and grilled strawberries and red plums show on the palate, which is framed by tense tannins.
