INTERNATIONAL WINE CELLAR - 2008 Krupp Brothers Synchrony
"Good bright red-ruby. Expressive aromas of currant, black cherry, graphite, licorice and chocolatey oak. Supple, suave and nicely balanced, with harmonious acidity and firm mineral spine giving shape to musky dark berry flavors. Finishes sweet and persistent. Offers more early sex appear than the winery's 2007 merlot."—ST
INTERNATIONAL WINE CELLAR - 2009 Krupp Brothers "The Doctor"
"Bright, medium ruby-red. Musky black raspberry and smoked meat on the nose. Plus, sweet and fine-grained but with nicely integrated acidity giving the middle palate a light touch. A harmonious and successful blend with lovely palate presence. Finishes with sweet tannins and excellent length, showing a more muscular aspect and a note of tobacco leaf as it opened in the glass."—ST

"A rich, creamy, seductive and structured style, with vanilla-scented orange and citrus, ripe pear and apple blossom flavors, gaining depth and ending with a long, detailed finish. Drink now through 2018."—J.L.
