Krupp Brothers Veraison Stagecoach Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|California, Napa Valley, Pritchard Hill
Sourced primarily from Napa’s famed Pritchard Hill, the 2018 Veraison Cabernet delivers on the promise of the region with seemingly endless depth and layers. Aromas of iris, black licorice and black currant with a pinch of white pepper. The palate opens with lush milk chocolate while flavors of café latte and blackberry ride along elegant tannins and bright acidity to a sumptuous finish of ripe, velvety mission fig and a dusting of cocoa.
93 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Veraison has a deep garnet-purple color, bursting from the glass with bombastic notions of crème de cassis, blueberry pie and Black Forest cake plus suggestions of Indian spices, hoisin and dusty soil with a waft of sandalwood. The full-bodied palate explodes with black fruit and exotic spice layers, supported by plush tannins and balancing freshness, finishing long and fragrant.
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon M5 is a big wine. Layers of inky red/purplish fruit saturate the palate as this plush, opulent wine shows off its personality. There is plenty of tannin, but also more than enough fruit to stand up to that heft.
Looking at the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Veraison, this is a ripe, sweetly fruited, up-front beauty that offers loads of jammy black and blue fruit as well as notes of chocolate, licorice, toasted spice, and scorched earth. With full-bodied richness on the palate, it has plenty of tannins, good overall balance, and a great finish. Enjoy this classic, ripe, opulently styled Cabernet any time over the coming 10-12 years.
