WINE ENTHUSIAST - 2009 Krupp Brothers Synchrony

"This is rich and dense in blackberry and cherry jam, currant, mocha, anise and smoky cedar flavors. The mountain tannins are strong but refined, and the finish is long and spicy. It’s a Bordeaux blend based on Cabernet Sauvignon, but be forewarned: It’s high in alcohol." —S.H.
