Stolpman ‘L’Avion’ 2007

SANTA YNEZ VALLEY | CALIFORNIA | $38
Sublime fruit of guava, grapefruit, Meyer lemon and a hint of fig, plus mineral-rich flavors of wet stones and chalk, highlighted with notes of delicate honeysuckle up front and sturdy citrus peel on the lingering finish. Ever so slightly vicious and a bit laden in the mouth, yet also so very intricate and fragile. A beautiful medium-bodied wine with great complexity, balance and interest. Rousanne 90%, Vigonier 10% — with robust 14.8% alcohol. An excellent wine. (Reviewed 5/27/13)
