VinoUS Media Review
Rated 92-95
The 2017 Syrah Para Maria is another attractive wine from Stolpman. Here, too, the fruit is bright, precise and articulate, which is to say quite a departure from the style of the 2016. Generous and pliant on the palate, with no hard edges and striking aromatics, the 2017 is shaping up to be a real beauty. The 2017 is a blend of 80% Syrah and 20% Petite Verdot (all purchased fruit) done with about 40% carbonic maceration. Don't miss it. (Antonio Galloni)

EDITORS CHOICE

The nose on this extremely well-priced bottling, named after vineyard manager Ruben Solorzano's wife, is intense yet elegant, with crushed slate, black currant and charred pork aromas. The palate's chalky texture carries flavors of black plum, boysenberry, dark cocoa, fennel and marjoram.

Wine Tasting Notes
This vintage of Para Maria sees an increase in freshness and verve from the uptick (40%) in Carbonic Syrah. The traditional Syrah portion wound up opulent and rich to balance the bright energy of the Carbonic portion. An increase to 20% Petite Verdot augmented the deep purple and black fruit flavor and granted enveloping, coating textures on the finish. A pop of bright cherry makes its first impression on the nose while in the mouth an exciting high-toned floating texture accompanies the continued happy-red spray of flavor. The backbone of the wine comes off as succulent grilled Nopales (cactus) as the juiciness finishes with a splash of blueberry.

80% Syrah, 20% Petit Verdot
