2019 Stolpman "Para Maria" Santa Barbara County Red Blend

SKU #1521204 94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This extremely affordable blend of 80% Syrah and 20% Petit Verdot always impresses. Expertly captured aromas of berry juice, pepper and thyme are savory yet soft on the nose. The palate is tense in structure but ripe in fleshy dark-red-fruit flavors, all elevated by cracked pepper and lavender touches. *Editors' Choice* (MK) Inner quote mark (1/2021)

K&L Notes

Over 20 years ago, founding partner Thomas Stolpman discovered what he believed to be one of the greatest viticultural sites on earth. The result is a 220-acre property of which 153 acres are currently planted to grapes on three major limestone ridgelines. In 2009 Peter Stolpman took over the day-to-day management of the vineyards and along his wife Jessica, they run this highly respected estate in the heart of Santa Barbara county. The Para Maria bottlings are a 50-50 partnership with the Solorzano family who manage the vineyards; the wine is named for Maria Solorzano who runs the crew.

Time and time again, Stolpman comes up with the goods. This Santa Barbara stalwart is pretty much untouchable when it comes to fantastic quality wines that consistently over-deliver on price. Our long-term, winery direct relationship helps keep those prices even sharper and grants us access to the most recent highly rated releases like this rockin' bottle of 2019 Para Maria. This somewhat unusual blend of 80% Syrah and 20% Petit Verdot works like a charm. The rich, sensual, smoky Syrah gives lots of generous, unctuous, ripe red fruits and the dollop of inky black, structured Petit Verdot brings some darker purple fruits, graphite, leather, and a lovely tannic grip that gives wonderful definition to the wine. You can treat this as an everyday go-to, but it also has the stuffing and quality to stand shoulder to shoulder with much more expensive wines. Don't be fooled by the value price tag—this is top-notch wine from one of the best producers in the state.
