Pretty intense on the nose, with aromas of cocoa, caramel, mocha, earth, dried herbs and licorice over a base of cola tinged plummy fruit. A large scaled opulent wine, this is dense and dark as it spread across the palate delivering dark, musky fruit drenched in briary, licorice and oaky flavors. The finish is cut short by fairly aggressive tannins and shows a decidedly minty edge to the rich chocolaty flavors and has some obvious heat. A powerful wine but one that lacks detail and elegance. 88pts

62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 9% Petite Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 3% Syrah Aged for 22 months in French oak 14.9% alcohol Crisp and balanced on the nose with a violet top note over a core of rich, slightly jammy red cassis fruit with a jammy strawberry undertone. There are notes of vanilla and coffee bean but they are well balanced by the bright fruit. In the mouth this is soft and rich with a velvety feel in a balanced, seamless style. This is still very young but the incipient complexity manages to squeeze through the fruit revealing integrated wood tones with hints of cinnamon, licorice, earth and cedar on the palate. The finish is long and shows nice precision with silky smooth tannins and a lingering note of woody sweetness. I would prefer this with a few more years of age. 2012-2025 92pts

Dark berry components. Nice spice and black currant notes. Some herbal characteristics. Full bodied with nice structural balanced components. Beautiful with my steak dinner.

Founded in 1861 by Charles Krug, Krug is now under the guidance of Peter Mondavi Sr. From the Wild West to the twenty-first century, relatively crude beginnings gave way to the finest form of winemaking.

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!
