Krupp Brothers 2011 The Doctor Red (Napa Valley)
A superb tannic-acid structure is allied with complex black currant, grilled meat bone and smoky oak flavors that finish dry, long and spicy. The cépage is Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo, Syrah, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc, making it one of the most compelling blends available today from Napa Valley. Give it until 2017–2018 in the cellar to begin to mellow.
