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
INTERNATIONAL WINE CELLAR - 2009 Krupp Brothers Chardonnay
"Medium yellow. Exotic aromas of ripe peach, toffee, vanilla and coconut. Concentrated and plump, with firm acidity and citrus peel lift giving shape to the stone fruit and nutty oak flavors. Slightly edgy on the persistent finish."—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.
"The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon M5 Stagecoach is a little bit richer and more opulent than the straight Cabernet. It boasts gorgeous inner perfume to match deep layers of expressive, rich fruit. The intensity carries through effortlessly to the long, resonant finish. This is the first bottling of the M5. It certainly looks like the Krupp brothers are off to a strong start here. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023."—AG
