Dark garnet hue leads to complex aromatics of blueberry, cassis, almond, toffee, sage, white pepper and clove.

WINE ADVOCATE - 2011 Krupp Brothers Synchrony

"The 2011 Synchrony, which emerges from the Stagecoach Vineyard, is dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon (84%) blended with 12% Cabernet Franc, 2% Merlot, 1% Malbec and 1% Petit Verdot. The fruit is more primordial and blacker than in The Doctor, and the wine is darker and smokier with more barbecue meat-like characteristics. It also offers attractive cassis, licorice and forest floor notes. This complex, medium to full-bodied blend exhibits a smooth finish displaying a hint of toasty oak. Drink it over the next 7-8 years."—RP
