Piercing, intense red fruit leading into quintessential Ballard Canyon Syrah blue berry all combine to create an impressive first impression. The beautiful burst of upfront bouquet is backed by serious, deep minerality and meaty savoriness - but all the while, the bright fruit shines persistently through. The savory edge of the spectrum even cuts to the edge of salt and brine and conjures up my favorite cut of beef - the worshipped, succulently textured dry-aged ribeye "cap". On the finish, well contained, elegant tannin rounds out the one-two punch of freshness and richness. In short, the 2015 Originals sums up exactly what we strive for at Stolpman.

Wine EnthusiastSmashed blackberry and mulberry mingle with black pepper and beef char on the nose of this bottling. It's still extremely young on the palate, not quite ready to release its bounty, but flavors of seared beef, tar, crushed marjoram, white pepper and forest floor indicate a compelling future.
