The 2017 Para Maria de los Tecolotes, a blend of Syrah and Petit Verdot, is pliant and energetic, with terrific balance and tons of sheer appeal. Dark red fruit, spice and wild flowers all develop in this forward, inviting wine from Stolpman. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, September 2019)

Can you call a wine a juice bomb? Because that’s what this is: raspberry, bacon fat, game juices and herbs...perfectly balanced and presenting itself like an old-school Crozes-Hermitage.

This grew on me significantly after letting it breath...a lot! Tons of blackberries and raspberries. Medium bodied. Tasty.

Medium body red. Fruity nose, ripe blackberries and tart cherry. Not too acidic with hints of tannin. Much better after opened for an hour. Enjoyable
