Winemaker's Notes:

Blend: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot, 4% Merlot, 5% Syrah, 4% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec

Nestled between the Vaca and Mayacamas Mountain ranges, the Yountville appellation provides complexity and finesse to Charles Krug's Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.

Intense aromas of rose petals and roasted coffee beans integrate with the richness from the winery's hand selected oak barrels, while flavors of dark cherries, cocoa and strawberry jam round out the flavor in a long, intense finish. Enjoy now or cellar through 2009 to 2011.

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.
