2010 Krupp Brothers "The Doctor," Napa Valley

Deep, dark in color. Captivating nose with floral and resinous aromas coupled with blueberry, cocoa and spicy cola. Weighty entry with layered tannins which coat the entire palate. Concentrated and bold dark fruit flavors are balanced by nice acidity and long, fine-grained tannins. This will be an age worthy wine. Drink now through 2024.
