Charles Krug Family Reserve Generations 2007
Wine Tasting Notes Our Peter Mondavi Family Generations is a tribute to family tradition and a commitment to quality. An artful blend of varietals create a wine of complexity and elegance. Aromas of espresso and nutmeg lead to the rich, plush red fruit flavors of black cherry and blueberry jam before finishing with grace and style.
External Reviews for Charles Krug Family Reserve Generations
Winemaker's notes - The 2007 season began dry, about 60% of normal precipitation with some very cold days and single-digit nighttime temperatures around the New Year holiday. Temperatures were warmer than normal as winter continued into spring with resulting earlier budding, bloom and set in the vineyards across all varieties. The summer months continued on the mild to cool side, with few days topping 100 degrees. There was a brief period of heat that spiked around Labor Day, but the temperatures cooled after several days. This year clusters, as well as individual berries on the clusters though set at a normal quantity were notably smaller in all varieties due to the dry season.
This estate bottled Reserve is the pinnacle of Charles Krug's Napa Valley red wine production. Only 1,100 cases were made from their vineyards in Yountville. A blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 11% Malbec, 6% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc aged 24 months in French oak barrels. On Sale! Very limited!
