WINE ADVOCATE - 2009 Krupp Brothers M5 Cabernet Sauvignon

"The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon M5 Stagecoach is a seriously intense, rich wine loaded with dark red fruit, spices, mint and flowers. The aromas and flavors build effortlessly in this virile, powerful Cabernet Sauvignon. In 2009 the M5 shows some of the authority of the 2008 but in a slightly more approachable style. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2021."—AG
