Critical Acclaim

"Bright ruby-red. Aromas of crushed blackberry, violet and smoked meat. Juicy, supple and sweet, with lovely floral lift giving the wine noteworthy inner-mouth energy. In its richness without weight, this feels more European than New World. Finishes with a fine dusting of firm tannins and complex, lingering notes of meat, spices, flowers and flinty minerals. This distinctive and very successful blend can be enjoyed now, but it also has the spine to age. "

"The 2009 Red Blend La Croce is a unique Sangiovese/Syrah blend. It shows lovely balance in its supple, harmonious dark fruit. Syrah seems to dominate the wine’s personality, while the Sangiovese is mostly felt in the wine’s softer textural profile vis-a-vis the other wines in this lineup."

Learn About Stolpman Vineyards

Stolpman Vineyards is located in Ballard Canyon, just 15 miles from the coast. The location lends to warm days with cool nights. Tom and Marilyn Stolpman planted their first grapes in 1992 and today have 120 planted acres. The vineyard continues to be a dynamic location for the planting of Syrah, Sangiovese and Rousanne. Jeff Newton and Larry Finkle, along with our Vineyard Manager, Ruben Solorzano, have recently planted high density vines and continue to explore the standards of what it takes to make the best quality grapes from southern exposed vines and limestone soil.
