Stolpman 2012 Syrah "Angeli," California
Vinous.com rating: 92..."The 2012 Syrah Angeli is the most overt of the Stolpman Syrahs. A wine of notable concentration and depth, the 2012 hits the palate with waves of fruit, all supported by beams of tannin. Small berries and loose bunches in this parcel give the Angeli a level of textural richness and depth that nearly buries the 70% whole clusters. In 2012, the Angeli is more about power than finesse, but it all works."
