Winemaker Stacy Clark Notes
THE WINE In our vineyards, certain blocks with distinctive characteristics produce grapes that are selected for our Family Reserve portfolio. This is true in the Voltz and Slinsen vineyards where we harvest the fruit for our Vintage Selection Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2012 vintage is full-bodied with blackberry and coffee bean aromas enhanced by baked berry, caramel and vanilla flavors producing a truly elegant and supple wine. THE VINTAGE The 2012 harvest was the largest on record for the Charles Krug Winery and, fortunately, it also possessed high overall quality, balance and color in part due to the fairly long, mild, growing season. Due to the long season we found ourselves waiting for maturity in all varieties, and then faced some ...more... cooler temperatures and threat of rain as the season drew to a close. Fortunately, Mother Nature cooperated gracefully with us for this stellar vintage. The grapes were very clean, the lots were very expressive aromatically, and in the case of the reds, very deeply colored.
