92 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2018 La Cuadrilla is a blend of 70% Syrah, 15% Sangiovese and 15% Grenache. Fresh and vibrant in the glass, with impeccable balance, the Cuadrilla is an absolutely delicious, vinous wine to drink now and over the next few years. Stolpman takes 10% of their profits from this wine and uses it to pay their vineyard staff (the cuadrilla) their year-end bonuses. Best of all, it's a fabulous value. Drink: 2020-2026. (Aug 2020)"

92 points and 'Editors' Choice,' Wine Enthusiast: "This bottling was a pioneer in uplifting the education and funding of farmworkers when it began years ago, and the results keep getting better. Aromas of cooked plums, cracked pepper, wood spice and beef jerky show on the nose of the blend of 70% Syrah, 15% Grenache and 15% Sangiovese, while smashed berries, toasted sage and coffee beans arise on the sip. Alcohol 14.1%. (May 2020)"

Producer notes: "70% Syrah, 15% Sangiovese, 15% Grenache. A model of the ripe yumminess the heavenly 2018 vintage will go down in history for. The wine shows deep, ripe red fruits, bold, expressive, and rotund all the while maintaining a nice kick of freshness and fun. This wine is not only a crowd pleaser it is a crowd stimulator to smile, toast and enjoy."
