Serve this one on the cool side to reign it in. Great with pasta with veal ragu last night.

A bit heavy on the fruit for me, but very drinkable

This was the Fall 2013 release, celebrating the vineyard manager Ruben Solorzano's 20th year with Stolpman. Gorgeous smoky aromas but dark fruit aromatics are present as well. Drinking smoothly, great balance of acidity and fruit with tannins beautifully integrated. From the website: "Sashi blended 47% 2010 Syrah and 38% 2010 Sangiovese with 15% fresh 2011 Syrah."
