WINE ADVOCATE - 2010 Krupp Brothers Black Bart Syrah

"The 2010 Syrah Black Bart Stagecoach Vineyard reveals plenty of site-specific character in its blackberries, olives, white pepper and flowers. The 2010 brings together the ripeness of a warm year and the bouquet of a cooler year. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022."—AG
