2017 Stolpman "Estate" Ballard Canyon Syrah

SKU #1442911 94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark In 2017, the Estate Syrah from Stolpman Vineyards is lively on the nose, deep and concentrated on the palate, and immediately accessible. 50% whole cluster fermentation, aged in 500L neutral barrels, and contains 2% Viognier. Aromas of wet violets, roasted blackberries and lavender. The palate is juicy and fresh with notes of boysenberry and blackberries. The finish brings one back for more, and the wine is remarkably tucked into place even at this early stage. (ML) Inner quote mark (8/2019)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark The Stolpmans play up the cool-climate aspects of Ballard Canyon in this bottling, offering crumbled violets, black-pepper and under-ripe boysenberry aromas on the nose. The palate sizzles with acidity, delivering fresh berry, pepper spice, thyme and fennel pollen flavors. (MK) Inner quote mark (9/2019)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Syrah Estate Grown is absolutely gorgeous. Fresh, floral and wonderfully perfumed, the Estate expresses all the best vintage had to offer. Sweet floral, spice and dried herbs are beautifully laced into a core of dark Syrah. Not only is the Estate a terrific example of the year, it also captures the interplay of rich fruit and more savory notes that is so typical of the best Ballard Canyon Syrahs. The 2017 is simply compelling. That's all there is to it. (AG) Inner quote mark (9/2019)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Containing 2% Viognier, the medium to deep ruby-purple colored 2017 Syrah Estate has a nose of violet, garrigue, red and black cherries, warm blackberries, olive, underbrush, bacon fat and dark chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, it has a pleasantly chewy frame and great freshness, finishing long. (EB) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

Once again an outstanding wine and an outstanding value. This is fruity, dense, and very deftly balanced between the dark fruit flavors, iron minerality and hints of beef blood on the intense finish. Folks who love northern Rhone Syrahs need to know how well these Stolpman wines over-perform.
