Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2002 Generations is a tribute to family tradition and a commitment to quality. An artful blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 12% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1% Syrah creates a wine of complexity body and spice. Hints of tar, licorice, mint, strawberry jam and rosemary tempt senses as rich red fruit; a soft mid-palate and a lengthy finish complete this wine.

Enjoy this wine with roast pork tenderloin with sage, chicken Parmesan, or blue cheese scalloped potatoes.

About Charles Krug:

The Charles Krug Winery was established in 1861 as the first winery in the Napa Valley by Prussian-born visionary and revolutionary Charles Krug. Today the winery focuses on handcrafted Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux varieties grown within with Napa Valley appellations and sub-appellations. The winery remains under the stewardship of the Peter Mondavi Sr Family, who purchased the historic winery in 1943. Peter Mondavi Sr remains at the helm of the winery, with day-to-day operations handled by his two sons Marc and Peter Jr.
