Stolpman 'La Cuadrilla' Red Blend Ballard Canyon, California 2019Regular price $22.00
This wine embodies what we love about Stolpman--it is made using natural methods and it benefits their employees. In 1997, Ruben Solorzano, the vineyard manager, started a training program in which he gave one small vineyard block (a Cuadra) to his team to farm. Today, the training has evolved and profits of this wine are returned to La Cuadrilla (the crew).
On the nose, we get of bright red and dark plum fruit with floral and earth. The palate has plush dark fruit and floral notes balanced by bright red fruit, juicy acidity, and chalky tannins on the finish.
Food Ideas: pulled pork tacos, chili, mushroom cannelloni, BBQ, chicken and lentil salad, meatloaf and garlic mashed potatoes
