Winemaker Stacy Clark Notes
This is a wine for the Generations. It will age gracefully and is a wine that pays homage to the contributions of the four generations of our family that have made Charles Krug the winery that it is today. The blend has toasty aromas filled with boysenberry, red currant and brown sugar, and is round and supple in mouthfeel. The chewy tannins and long nish are complemented by blueberry and berry flavors. 83% Cabernet Sauvignon 7% Malbec 5% Merlot 5% Petit Verdot 20 months in new French oak – 15.1% alcohol This beauty reveals lots of blueberry, mulberry and blue fruits, a dense ruby/purple color, sweet tannins, and a medium to full-bodied, elegant yet substantial style. With no hard edges, this seamless stunner is a top examp ...more... le of not only 2012, but of Charles Krug's resurgence in the marketplace as a serious player. Drink it over the next 10-12 years. Robert Parker – 91 Points
