Charles Krug is the oldest winery in Napa Valley. Established in Yountville in 1861 it's in its 150th year and still producing top quality/value Napa Cab. The Mondavi family purchased the winery in the 1940's and today Peter Mondavi and his sons run the day-to-day operation. Grapes for this 2008 were sourced from estate vineyards in Yountville and other prime Napa Valley locales. 2008 produced a smaller than usual crop but of very high quality. A blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Syrah, 5% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot, 3% Petite Sirah, 2% Malbec, 2% Cabernet Franc aged 21 months in French and American oak. Ripe cassis and black cherry flavors mingle with dark chocolate, spices and toast with supple tannins. Limited!

Provokes aromas of anise and pomegranate that melds with smoky overtones. On the palate, flavors of ripe red berries and hickory bring out hints of nutmeg. Well balanced oak gives way to smooth, rich finish for this exceptional wine.

Our Peter Mondavi Family Generations is a tribute to family tradition and commitment to quality. This vintage of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot opens with roasted chestnuts and brown sugar aromas. Flavors of candied cherries, blackberry and underlying mineral notes assure a rich, round and persistent finish. Enjoy!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 by three 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 season were well-structured, elegant and full of flavor. - Winery

Charles Krug Cabernet Sauvignon Yountville 2008 750ML


External Review
01/03/2012

It is a solidly made wine with 8% Merlot in the blend. A deep ruby/purple color is followed by aromas of black currants, Dried herbs, spice and subtle wood. Rich, ripe and medium to full-bodied, with excellent concentration, low acidity, and a lush texture, it should drink well for 6ndash;8 years. It is an excellent value.
