SKU #1476005 92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This bottling was a pioneer in uplifting the education and funding of farmworkers when it began years ago, and the results keep getting better. Aromas of cooked plums, cracked pepper, wood spice and beef jerky show on the nose of the blend of 70% Syrah, 15% Grenache and 15% Sangiovese, while smashed berries, toasted sage and coffee beans arise on the sip. (MK) Inner quote mark (5/2020)

Outer quote mark The 2018 La Cuadrilla offers lovely freshness and vibrancy in a mid-weight style that is hugely appealing. Floral overtones give this Syrah/Grenache/Sangiovese blend gorgeous perfume. Although not especially complex, the 2018 is a real delight to taste. (AG) Inner quote mark (9/2019)

Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark Meaning "The Crew," La Cuadrilla was originally a year-to-year changing blend sourced from an annually different small block, or "cuadra," in the winery's estate vineyards, the responsibility for the farming of which lay wholly with Stolpman's vineyard crew as a means of making them more than just workers following orders. Now a larger program that incorporates ten-percentage of Stolpman's production, the La Cuadrilla label changes each year as does the wine inside the bottle. The 2018 edition is a rich, easy-drinking wine whose light Syrah spice defers to juicy, up-front fruit, and it is nothing less than an out-and-out bargain that affords lots of immediate, guilt-free enjoyment. *Good Value* Inner quote mark (3/2020)

K&L Notes

Winery notes: "A model of the ripe yumminess the heavenly 2018 vintage will go down in history for. The wine shows deep, ripe red fruits, bold, expressive, and rotund all the the while maintaining a nice kick of freshness and fun. This wine is not only a crowd pleaser it is a crowd stimulator to smile, toast, and enjoy. 70% Syrah, 15% Sangiovese, 15% Grenache aged in 100% neutral French Ermitage 500L oak puncheons."
