    Winemaker Notes

    The 2008 growing season saw widespread frost damage and challenging summer conditions, which reduced yields and produced a lighter than average vintage. A dry spring and a lengthy late April frost, the coldest in more than three decades,were followed bythree odd heat waves before mid July, rain in some places, and high winds - all during the critical bloom period. As a result, grapes were smaller, but more concentrated. Despite a 'crazy' weather year, wines produced in this seson were well structured, elegant, and full of flavor.

    Our Peter Mondavi Family Chardonnay has a notably rich, tropical fruit aroma with a melange of butterscotch, vanilla and brown sugar flavors. The lingering pear notes make this wine perfect for pairing with pan seared Alaskan halibut or pesto stuffed sea scallops.

    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.

    The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
