2006 Stolpman Estate Syrah

Postby Steve Anderson » Sun Nov 24, 2013 11:27 pm

Bought four of these on the secondary market four years ago. It's been a while since I opened one, and found this in the back of the locker during a recent search for another wine.

Enjoyed this over three nights and still drinking well on night three. Great Syrah nose of Blackberry and smoked meat. On the palate, savory with the same elements plus some black olive and a smooth, medium-long blueberry finish. Enjoyed this quite a bit and sad to say this was the last of the four.

85% Syrah and 15% Grenache. Surprised to see a production figure of 2,000 cases. Based on the quality I was expecting perhaps 200.
