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
