2008 Krupp Brothers Veraison Red Wine, Napa Valley

This wine is rich in aromatics consisting of dark fruits, roasted coffee bean, tobacco, red licorice and spice.

The structure of the wine is powerful and concentrated which leads to a long & elegant finish.

WINE ENTHUSIAST - 2008 Krupp Brothers Veraison Red Wine

"Smooth in tannins with a nice bite of acidity, this shows rich flavors of blackberry, cherry and spice, with a touch of mocha that gives it an appar­ent sweetness. It’s a Bordeaux blend with some Syrah, grown in the famed Stagecoach Vineyard." —S.H.
