"Brimming with boysenberry, blackberry, dark cherry, black pepper and cloves. Flavors of blueberry, dark chocolate covered coffee beans and maple-glazed bacon envelop the palate. Richly textured with round tannins that persist into a long finish. Pair with lamb chops in a balsamic demi-glace and porcini mushroom risotto. Drink now through 2020." —winemaker

Wine Anthology review:
For this Syrah, the winery chose the name "Black Bart" after the notorious bandit of the same name, who robbed stagecoaches near the Krupps' present-day vineyard throughout the late 1800s. To create this 2013, Jan Krupp selected fruit from two specific vineyard blocks that are not offered for sale to other wineries, and after 20 months in oak it's a rich and velvety Syrah reminiscent of a Côte-Rôtie. Vanilla bean makes an appearance alongside bold notes of blackberry and raspberry, while a suggestion of smoked meat brings in a firm savory quality.
"The gorgeous 2013 Black Bart’s Syrah Stagecoach Vineyard is a big, brawny Syrah (15.1% alcohol) with a black/purple color and a beautiful, meaty nose of blackberry, licorice and truffle. Luscious, heady and full-throttle, this stunner should drink well for another decade or more." —Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
