2003 Nebbiolo
Stolpman Vineyard, Santa Ynez Valley

This is the newest vintage of our Nebbiolo. As usual we see some variation from vintage to vintage. 2002 was a year in which we increased our production of this variety. The grapes were picked a little earlier than usual and the wine has a bit more acidity than recent vintages. The wonderful cherry flavors are still there. Each year I try to make this wine a little more “Italian” while maintaining the cherry-like richness that makes this wine so popular. The way this wine finishes makes me think I am on the right track. Considered by many to be the best Italian grape, Nebbiolo is the pride of the Piemonte (Piedmont) region in Northwest Italy. Our version is medium bodied and fruity. The cherry red color is a hint of the black cherry flavors that dominate this wine. There is just the right amount of acidity for an Italian red wine, which makes it an especially fine accompaniment to a good tomato sauce such as you might have on anything from pasta to fish to chicken to veal to beef.
