KRUPP BROTHERS 2011 CABERNET SAUVIGNON "M5 - STAGECOACH" NAPA VALLEY 750mL

Brothers Jan and Bart Krupp were told they were crazy for planting a vineyard on hills with such rocky soil. But when they were done, the quality was so intense that wineries such as Caymus, Paul Hobbs, Pahlmeyer, Miner, and Selene were buying their grapes, not to mention those who called them crazy, too!

The vineyard lies in an area known to the Napa locals as Foss Valley, surrounded by Atlas Peak to the south, Pritchard Hill to the north, and Oakville to the east. The soils, elevations, and exposures creat the IDEAL conditions for a variety of grapes, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Chardonnay, Syrah, Viognier, and Sangiovese.

Inky black in color, with aromatic complexity and fantastic varietal character. Layers of ripe boysenberry, cassis, cocoa, caramel and toasted French oak lift from the glass. The palate is massive yet flush, round, and full of flavors consisting of ripe black cherry, dark chocolate, blackberry and well integrated caramelized oak. The finish is long, rich, and lasts for over 60 seconds! This M5 is truly a classic Cabernet Sauvignon from Dr. Krupp's favorite block in the hills of Stagecoach Vineyard. This is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, and only 225 cases were produced!

ANTONIO GALLONI 91-93 POINTS - 'The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon M5 is shaping up to be the most successful of these 2011s. Chocolate, mocha, plums, tobacco and sweet herbs are woven together in an attractive fabric. All the elements fall into place in this striking, beautifully crafted wine."
