The 2016 Syrah Estate is dense and powerful in the glass, with plenty of fruit intensity. Even so, the shift towards a more polished, subtle style that is so evident in the 2017s is already quite evident here. Today, the Estate is a bit shy, but all the elements are very nicely balanced. I especially admire the wine's persistence. (AG)
The 2016 Syrah Estate spent 10 months in neutral, larger barrels before being bottled. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by a beautiful bouquet of black and blue fruits, ground pepper, bacon fat, and cured meats. It's medium-bodied, has good acidity and notable tannins, and is a classic, impeccably made Syrah well worth seeking out.
Stolpman's largest cuvée, amounting to some 4,400 cases, is the keenly priced 2016 Syrah Estate, which reveals a classic nose of blackberry, violets, rose petal, cracked pepper and grilled meat. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, expansive and juicy with an ample core of sweet fruit and good length and persistence. Some chalky tannins assert themselves on the finish, but it's already drinking well. (WK)
Compact elderberry aromas and purple flowers mesh with savory touches of roasted beef and black pepper on the nose of this bottling, which is quite young. Black-currant and lilac flavors pop on the sip before the tightly woven structure temporarily hides them, though they will surely arise in the years to come. Drink 2020–2036. *Cellar Selection* (MK)
A tad riper and a bit better filled than its counterpart from 2015, Stolpman's latest Estate Grown Syrah is a deep and defined effort that hits all of the right varietal bases. It smells generously of fully ripe berries and plums with plenty of distinctive Syrah spice and sports touches of cola, dried violets and sweet cream all of which are reiterated with great confidence in the youthful, very vital flavors that follow, and, although a fairly full-bodied wine of fine concentration, it exhibits great energy for a Syrah of its size. It tightens up and shows just enough finishing astringency to warn off hasty drinking, but it is guaranteed to grow for a good many years and earns an extra round of applause for unbeatable value. *Good Value*
