Krupp Brothers Estates Merlot Napa Valley Stagecoach Vineyard 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Bottle Size: 750 mlVineyard: Stagecoach Vineyard, Napa ValleyVarietal Composition: Merlot with small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, and Petit VerdotWinemaker's Notes: A rich reddish-black hue. Aromas of dried cherries, sweet soy sauce, violets, dried figs, cassis, dried cranberries, and spices. The palate transitions to sweet currants, dark cherries, and ripe plums. This is a dense and well focused Merlot that displays a fine and persistent finish with a hint of tarriness at the finish. Best served with roasted leg of lamb, veal ragout, and venison sausages. Enjoy now through 2018.

Krupp Brothers Estates:
The hunt to find unrivaled vineyard land led Dr. Jan Krupp high into Napa Valley’s eastern hills to a harsh mountain site, strewn with rocks and choked with chaparral, straddling Pritchard Hill and the Atlas Peak appellation. A physician with a green thumb and a passion for great wine, Krupp purchased a 41-acre property here in 1991 and began clearing the land for his new vineyard.
