Winery Spotlight: Krupp Brothers Estate

Image
  About ten years ago, Jeff blindly reached out to Krupp Brothers winery to introduce himself as a fledgling wine blogger.  The winery was kind enough to send Jeff a few bottles to review, and the rest, as they say, is history.  We have been very enthusiastic fans of Krupp Brothers wines and have enjoyed sharing these wines not only virtually with their readers, but in person with their friends.  And, just as it should happen, it did.  Those friend started buying Krupp Brothers wines and eventually some of them became wine club members.   In late August, we had the opportunity to travel with close friends to Napa and Sonoma for an amazing wine adventure.  This was our second visit to the Krupp Brothers estate in as many years and we were excited to share this special place with a new couple joining us on our trip this year.

2014 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Armillary Cabernet Sauvignon

Man, this one is BIG!   I received this bottle of 2014 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Armillary Cabernet Sauvignon last week and let it rest a few days before tasting.   Tasted over two days, this initially tossed around aromas of plum, leather, cedar, menthol and a touch of sage again big, rich tannins and a lingering finish.  Despite the 15%+ alcohol content, this wasn't hot at all.  In fact, it was beautifully made and a real pleasure to drink.  I was lucky enough to have some of this to taste a second night with a chicken pasta dish that I make regularly and the pairing was spot on.  The wine was more Bing cherry, cocoa powder and tea leaves with saddle leather and neither the pasta or wine overpowered each other.  I absolutely adore a 100% Cabernet that is completely mouth-coating as this one and if you're looking for an amazing wine to share with friends, this is your huckleberry!

  2. Hey it’s Jason with Zogby, I wanted to let you know COVID has truly changed the wine industry! Our online store has never seen so many online sales for light red wine. It’s insane. According to our internal sales data, people are consuming wine + tequila the most.

  4. To be explicit, wine olfactory sources of info (smell mixes) first enact our "olfactory bulb". Signs sent from the olfactory bulb to different zones in the cerebrum, are at last coordinated in the prefrontal orbitocortex of our mind with the contribution from our taste and mouthfeel receptors. italian fine wines prices.

  6. all things blenders and juicers Luckily, one instrument can make ice-mixed beverages and make organic product squeezes simultaneously. With regards to delightful smoothies or nutritious organic product drinks, you can generally depend on a blender juicer.
