Stolpman Vineyards 2014 La Cuadrilla – Translates to ” the crew” Profits of this wine are shared with the vineyard crew. Syrah dominant blend with Sangiovese and Grenache. Deep dark purple color. Aroma is leather, blackberry, tobacco, and slight notes of lavender. Full bodied with ripe dark fruit, charred oak, slightly herbal, hints of black pepper with great tannin structure. Great wine for grilled meats, particularly steak. Ready to drink now, but this wine will certainly improve over the next couple years.
