Stolpman’s Own-Rooted Tribute
Named after Marilyn Stolpman’s Italian Surname, Tom Stolpman originally intended the Angeli cuvee to be simply a small selection of the very best barrels from the estate.  Today, the wine consistently comes from one all-star, micro-block of Syrah perched above Ballard Canyon Road.  Surrounded by compact, wind-tilted Coastal Oak trees, the Angeli vines are all own-rooted in our limestone soils and trained just 18 inches above the ground.  The grapes up here burst with bright, dynamic flavor even when tasted off the vine. 

A second year of drought reduced our 2022 yields and led to a small crop.  Our vines naturally set only a few tiny clusters each.  A Labor Day heatwave further intensified the ripe flavor concentration of the tiny clusters.  Ripening occurred on the Angeli ridgeline at an ideal time, a couple weeks after the heatwave, which allowed the vines a nice recovery period to continue to ripen. 
Deep, intense purple-dominated perfume encompasses beckoning freshness all the way to the inky blackness that immediately fills the mouth.  Absolutely seamless and graceful, effortlessly athletic and powerful, a true thoroughbred, with energy bounding out of the glass.
