Syrah So Hot Estate Grown Ballard Canyon Syrah 2017

Imagine Allemand being kidnapped and transported to the Wine Ghetto. Imagine him being told “do your Syrah thing...or else”. Carbonic. Sans soufre. Gaining weight and complexity 36 hours after opening. Will easily go 10 years. Sublime & extraordinary. #stolpmanvineyards #syrah #ballardcanyon #sanssoufre #carbonic — 2 years ago

Retasted 12/19/18. Even more explosive and energetic. Many clients feel it tastes like Mourvèdre, but underneath the fruity vitality, there’s olive, bay laurel and ham hock that can only be classic Syrah. Shockingly good.

La Cuadrilla Ballard Canyon Red Blend 2016

2016 Ballard Canyon in a snapshot: high-energy, fresh, pure. This year’s Cuadrilla is Syrah-heavy (72%), with Sangio and Grenache for lift. One of the best yet in this series of extraordinary wines! #stolpmanvineyards #ballardcanyon #syrah — 2 years ago

Ballard Canyon Roussanne 2016

Chamomile, dry cider, Fino, hazelnuts and sea salt. More skin contact, less new oak this year. Hermitage-like. Ridiculous. #roussanne #stolpmanvineyards — 3 years ago

Originals Ballard Canyon Syrah 2014

Charles (Chad) Bucklin

Wound up and young. Med + intensity with good complexity. Flowers, allspice, black and blue fruit. The palate was bright and well structured with firm tannins. Decent finish of cocoa and heat Needs time. #stolpmanvineyards #syrah #santabarbara #california #usa #ballardcanyon #ctbucklinwine — 3 years ago
