Not sure what to think about this one. My friend liked it. I on the other hand did enjoy it as much. Seemed to me to be sort of a creamy fruit forward Pinot. It may have been because this was a second bottle of the night my palate was off a bit. Normally I love this producer so I will revisit and see if anything changes. #saarloosandsons #staritahills #losolivos #pinotnoir #winestagram #california #centralcoastwine — 2 years ago
For bulk wine, good. Good enough to be the Chardonnay you have strapped by dumpsters in the alley outside of work, while others are on their cigarette break. I'd always gladly refer back to this Chard w/o to much worry about self-preservation.

Delicious #centralcoastwine #pinotnoir #ednavalley #fieldrecording I was happily surprised by this wine, the label made me think it was going to be frivolous and more interesting on the outside than on the inside, boy was I wrong! It's a fantastic PN with a harmonious balance of youthful red fruits and refreshing acidity with a medium juicy body and perfectly ripe. — 3 years ago
This was not part of the Peter Stolpman tasting yesterday but Olivia Jupillat @princetoncorkscrew is wise like an owl. She recommend I get a bottle of this Stolpman "Para Maria", super fun wine with acid and fruit dancing all over my tongue. 15% carbonic. @peter_stolpman #Syrah #CentralCoastWine — 4 years ago
Clear and bright pale lemon. Clean pronounced aromas of ripe apricot, sage, fennel and gingerbread. On the palate it's dry albeit with a lush glyceric texture with medium plus intensity flavors of of apricot pie with a smiley charred crust and a touch of nutmeg and spice. Medium plus alcohol, medium plus acidity, well integrated oak, balanced with a medium plus finish. Complex, unique and well balanced. Only 22 barrels. #staritahills #chardonnayfromthebestplaceonearth #chardonnay #centralcoastwine #californianwine #sbcountywines — 3 years ago
