A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. DarrenDelmore is the National marketing guy for TablasCreekVnyd. He makes a little bit of wine on the side. He was in town for SantaFe W&C Fiesta and hosted a TablasCreek dinner last night at StateCapitalKitchen, so brought the half case I'd ordered with him.
The StoloFamilyVnyd is, perhaps, the coldest Syrah vnyd in all Calif. It's just east of Cambria and only a few miles from the Pacific. Further west than even Bassetti. They also make their own wine under te StoloFamilyVnyds label.
