Juicy and delicious little Trousseau from Ballard Canyon, Cali. Grounded in ripe, red fruited-New World goodness on the palate but offers a salutatory wink and a nod to the Jura for its earthy and funky nose. It’s just an enjoyable, fun glass of wine.

It may have just been a good day or it may have been a really good bottle of wine. But this Syrah is really enjoyable. A little more blackberry than blueberry to me. Touch of pepper and licorice add to the beautiful finish. There is not a lot of this made and you owe it to yourself to try it before it is gone. #saarloosandsons #syrah #ballardcanyon #fatmanterrace #winestagram — 6 years ago
Wound up and young. Med + intensity with good complexity. Flowers, allspice, black and blue fruit. The palate was bright and well structured with firm tannins. Decent finish of cocoa and heat Needs time. #stolpmanvineyards #syrah #santabarbara #california #usa #ballardcanyon #ctbucklinwine — 7 years ago
I tried a new wine which was the 2013 Saarloos and Sons Big Brother Grenache Noir. Wine is like your real life family, some you love, some you tolerate and........well some you don't want to mention. The Big Brother Grenache Noir is like that distant cousin you just met that you wish was your sibling. Upon opening this up to breathe I was greeted with licorice and spice and to me a touch of earth. Once I drank it I was greeted with velvety touches of tobacco, pepper, dark cherries and well balanced acid and tannins. This wine lingered on the palate like a good family memory should. Not knowing what to expect I was very pleasantly surprised with this wine. It will be added to my wines for my family's gatherings and wine times. I hope you try it and enjoy it as much as I did. #saarloosandsons #windmillranch #losolivos #ballardcanyon #grenachenoir — 8 years ago
Imagine Allemand being kidnapped and transported to the Wine Ghetto. Imagine him being told “do your Syrah thing...or else”. Carbonic. Sans soufre. Gaining weight and complexity 36 hours after opening. Will easily go 10 years. Sublime & extraordinary. #stolpmanvineyards #syrah #ballardcanyon #sanssoufre #carbonic — 6 years ago
