    One of my favorite Syrahs from anywhere on the planet and consistently deemed one of the finest examples of the variety produced in California by many top critics. The Stolpman family were founders of the growing region known today as Ballard Canyon and their dream was to have it recognized as a world-class site for Rhone varietals, something I believe they proved long ago. The 2018 Estate Syrah is absolutely quintessential Syrah; it's bursting with smoky, gamy, black and blue fruits hemmed in by high-toned florals on one end and deep bass tones of scorched earth and cracked peppercorns on the other. Whilst the fruit is lush and mouth coating, the floral lift, spice, and savory tones provide depth and complexity beyond the wonderfully pure mid-palate fruit. Medium-plus bodied with ultrafine tannins and perfectly judged acidity playing equal roles in sculpting the wine's form. It's pure class and a pleasure to drink now or over the coming 10+ years. Galloni calls this a "reference-point wine for the appellation." I might go a few steps further and call it a reference-point wine for Syrah in general.
