2017 Krupp Brothers Black Bart Napa Valley Syrah California USA
The 2017 Black Bart Syrah is a rich and intensely concentrated wine with aromas of blackberry, cardamom and black pepper. The elegant palate offers layers of fresh black plum and blackberry interlaced with notes of hickory-smoked bacon and clove, leading to a long, peppery finish.
Pair with roasted pork tenderloin in a plum reduction sauce or bacon and mushroom risotto. Drink now through 2032.
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Syrah Black Bart leaps out of the glass with warm cherries, plums and boysenberries plus violets, chocolate box, licorice and cracked pepper with a waft of bacon fat. Full-bodied and firm with ripe, rounded tannins, it is packed with vibrant fruit and finishes long and peppery.
