inside the bottle

"Complex nose displaying layers of ripe cassis, dark plum, toasted vanilla spice, bay leaf, floral notes and subtle earthy aromas. Excellent concentration of fleshy round tannin fill the palate along with flavors of ripe blackberry, chocolate covered cherry, clove, dark truffle and well-integrated caramelized oak. The persistent yet elegant finish is polished and round. Drink now through 2024." - Winemaker's Notes "The 2009 Veraison Red & Krupp Brothers emerges from the glass with freshly cut roses, flowers, spices and licorice. Silky tannins frame the fruit through to the finish in this supple, radiant red. Veraison is a blend of approximately 33% Syrah, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 12% Malbec, 6% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024. The Krupp brothers and winemaker Aaron Pott make rich, textured wines. The Krupps have sold fruit from their large, well-known Stagecoach vineyard for years, but have only been bottling since 2008. The most interesting wines are the Syrahs and Cabernets. The Black Bart Syrah is made from the lower parts of the family's holdings in Stagecoach and is aged about 20 months in oak. The Krupp Brothers Syrah is made from the higher blocks on the Stagecoach hill, and sees 3 years in oak. It is a much smaller production wine than the Black Bart. The top of the line Cabernet Sauvignon M5 is a selection from a parcel planted with the Wiemar clone sourced from Chateau Latour. The 2009 Cabernets saw lengthy macerations lasting as much as 50 days, and were subsequently aged in French oak barrels, 70% new." - Wine Advocate
