Winemaker's Notes:

Beautifully balanced with layers of blackberry, raspberry, roasted coffee and white pepper spice, this medium bodied Zinfandel has supple tannins and a lush, round finish. Enjoy this wine with a hearty dish of beef short ribs with chipotle peppers and fresh oranges or spiced pulled-pork on fresh ciabatta rolls.

Blend: 89% Zinfandel, 10% Petite Sirah, 1% Carignane

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.
