Winemaker's Notes:

Since 1944, Charles Krug's flagship wine, Vintage Selection Cabernet Sauvignon, has been crafted only when the vintage is optimum. This vintage provided a real melange of favorable conditions that yielded aromas of nutmeg, brown sugar, vanilla bean and black cherries. Luscious flavors of roasted chestnuts, blueberry jam and cranberry apple compliment the soft chewy texture and integrated toasty oak nuances.

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.
