Stolpman Vineyards 2018 Hilltops Syrah
The pretty lavender on the nose belies the smooth decadence in the mouth. Hilltops might be the ultimate example of the suppleness of the 2018 vintage. After letting the wine breathe, gorgeous deep shades of red emerge in force, a wave washing through from nose to finish. The wine hits a silky, velvety stride that makes it tough to resist hoarding bottles.
