WINE ENTHUSIAST - 2007 Krupp Brothers Synchrony

"The wine tastes and feels important. It has great weight and depth. The tannins are extraordinarily thick, but ripe and smoothly sweet. And then there’s the fruit, a detonation of blackberries, cherries, blueberries and cassis, not to mention the oak, which seems as fine as oak gets. This superb wine seems like an obvious cellar candidate. It should ride out the decade effortlessly. Cellar Selection." —SH

WINE ADVOCATE - 2007 Krupp Brothers Synchrony

"An interesting effort, the 2007 Synchrony (a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc) comes from red aiken soils. It offers up notes of menthol, earth, sweet blueberries and red currants in its elegant, restrained, attractive personality. Slightly understated but graceful, it is best consumed over the next 7-8 years." –RP
