Winemaker’s Notes
Ruben Solorzano has managed Stolpman Vineyards since 1994. The goal of this wine is to let Ruben’s farming shine through. A perfectly aged stunner: Cocoa, Cherry bark, and toasted almond, with cassis and currants on the nose. Deep purple and plummy on the front pallet, but still light, vibrant and uplifting. Back pallet has much more spice and lingers for quite a while: White pepper, sage and bay. Rich mouthfeel, balanced by the freshness of the fruits and mild tannin.”

Food Suggestions: Lamb


  • 93 Robert Parker Wine Advocate

    The last vintage that will be released under this label, the 2014 Hecho por Ruben is lovely, offering up notions of sweet blackberry, smoke and grilled fruit, followed by a supple, medium-bodied, savory palate with real Syrah character, framed by fine tannins and concluding with a long, flavorful finish.

    Extremely lively peppercorn aromas meet with black plum, blackberry, dried violets and lavender on the nose of this bottling by vineyard manager Ruben Solorzano. The palate is spicy with cracked pepper, rosemary oil and pine needles, which is mixed with the blackberry and elderberry fruits. Roasted lamb flavors also make an appearance against tannins that rise up in the finish. (MK) (12/2017)
