WINE ADVOCATE - 2008 Krupp Brothers Syrah

"The 2008 Syrah Stagecoach Vineyard is plush, round and totally inviting. This is a style that emphasizes textural finesse and body over the varietal notes that are typical of this grape. Dark red plums, flowers and licorice wrap around the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2018."—AG
