Winemaker's Notes:

A heady bouquet of spice and ripe fruit segues into jammy blackberry mingled with notes of cranberry. The first taste offers a soft entry with a texture of lush tannins and well-integrated berry fruit that fills the palate. The finish lingers as it replays notes of fruit and cloves interwoven with sweet vanilla oak. Pairs well with many foods including red meats, savory stews, game, and rich, sharp cheeses.

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.
