2016 Krupp Brothers Black Bart Napa Valley Syrah California USA
"Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Syrah Black Bart is a little reticent to begin. With coaxing, it offers glimpses at baked plums, black cherry compote and blueberry pie notes with hints of tar, tobacco, black pepper, star anise, garrigue and fertile loam. Full-bodied, the palate packs in the black fruit and savory layers with a firm frame of rounded tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and peppery."
94 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2016 Syrah Black Bart is one inky colored Syrah. Offering up impressive amounts of jammy blackberry and blueberry fruits, it has classic peppery herbs and gamey nuances, medium to full-bodied, a seamless texture, and beautiful length. It's a classic, powerful Napa Valley Syrah that stays balanced and light on its feet. Drink this smoking effort over the coming 7-8 years."
