2007 Krupp Brothers Cabernet Sauvignon, Stagecoach Vineyard

Beautiful deep purple hues captivate the eye. This wine is abundant in complex aromatics of cassis, violets, caramel, chocolate, toasted vanilla and smoked meats. Very soft and weighty entry which leads to beautifully structured and layered tannins. The flavor profile is dominated by dark black fruits with nuances of roasted coffee bean and earthy black tea characters. The finish is long and elegant, showing great aging potential.

WINE SPECTATOR INSIDER - 2007 Krupp Brothers Cabernet Sauvignon

"Dense and chewy, a powerful expression of Cabernet that’s rich with blackberry, currant, cedar, tobacco and graphite flavors and wall-to-wall tannins. Best from 2013 through 2025."—J.L.

WINE ADVOCATE - 2007 Krupp Brothers Cabernet Sauvignon

"The outstanding, deep ruby/purple-tinged 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Stagecoach Vineyard exhibits a classic bouquet of underbrush, forest floor, black currants, cedar and spice. Fresh, medium to full-bodied and deep, it requires 2-3 years of bottle age and should keep for 10-15 years." –RP
