Winemaker's Notes:

Beautiful deep red rose petal color with very concentrated berry aromas and traces of cocoa and vanilla. Silky palate with blackberry fruit and chewy tannins. Full bodied structure of both elegance and depth. A round and graceful Cabernet Sauvignon with sweet vanilla oak and wood spice.

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.
