This one has aged well showing notes of salinity, bordering on Parmesan! Nice oak and a long finish round this one out nicely.

First off. This is a damned heavy bottle. Creamy pear on the nose, but closed. Charred oak on the palate. Light acidity but young. Mild citrus. There's more here, but it's just not ready.

In 1999, Jan and Bart founded Krupp Brothers, producing their first vintage. Bright yellow with aromas of stone fruits and sweet citrus scents. On the palate apple, melon and some peach flavors and hints of lemon citrus, delicate, complex and well balanced. Lingering finish, savory, ending with mineral tones and nutty vanilla oak. Nice! Tasting Sample!

Big Napa chard. Not a bomb though. Creamy texture. Lightly buttered popcorn, vanilla, lemon peel, yellow peach, ripe yellow apple, overripe pineapple, new oak spice, cinnamon, 5-spice, touch of clove. Needs time to integrate it all with 14.5% abv. Needs food.

Creamy but not oaky. Baked apple and citrus aromas. Quite delicious, as always.

Nice Chard, has good acidity and is well balanced, big fruity flavor with just enough butter and oak...but seems a bit shallow, might need some more time in the bottle
