Wine Review: This "Estate" Syrah from Stolpman finished in 3rd place in our Big Blind Syrah tasting. It is slightly opaque with dark purple coloring. It opens with a mild ripe blackberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied and well balanced. The flavor profile is a mild blackberry with notes of spice throughout. We also detected some oak and Earl Grey tea on the back palate. The finish is dry and its chalky tannins are lengthy. The panel suggested pairing this Syrah with duck breast or lamb chops. It is clearly one of the best deals we found. It is a heck of Syrah for $34. Enjoy – KWGTP
