Our Cabernet Sauvignon evokes aromas of black cherry, raspberry and a hint of cocoa. Flavors of black currant mingle with rose petals while supple, smoky overtones visit the back palate. A silky mouthfeel and balanced tannins create an elegant finish to this classic Napa Valley wine. - Winery

With rare exceptions, Charles Krug has been turning out some of the most drinkable Cabernets in Napa Valley without gouging customers on price. This rsquo;06, from their vineyard in Yountville, is a lovely wine. Bone dry and beautifully structured, it shows classic flavors of black currants, cedar and spices. Now - 2012.

An impressively cool and brisk cabernet, predominantly from Charles Krugrsquo;s estate vineyards in Yountville, this starts out on black plum and grows increasingly more generous with air. The wine expands into deep purple-black fruit and potent tannins, which brings out some warmth to balance the fresh, minty aspects of the flavor. Decant a bottle for lamb chops.

Charles Krug was the first Mondavi family foray into the Napa Valley, a historic property that remained in the hands of Peter Mondavirsquo;s family after a dispute over business expenses that led Robert Mondavi to establish his own winery. Peter Mondavi continued to pronounce his name with an American accent (mon-Day-vi) and never bought into the Napa Valley style that his brother helped to create. The Charles Krug brand remained traditional and relatively sleepy, even with the assets of 850 acres of vines throughout the valley. In 1999, the Mondavis began replanting their vineyards and retooling their winery, with the results starting to show in wines like this brisk 2006 cabernet from the relatively cool reaches of Yountville. Its depth of fresh, purple plum fruit and potent tannins would structure a wine at a much higher price.

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.

Charles Krugrsquo;s style remains the same over the decades, producing balanced, dry table wines capable of some aging. This Cab is tannic and a bit austere now, with suggestions of blackberries and cherries. But the structure is very fine, especially the tannins, which are rich and complex. Drinkable now, with decanting, and should develop over the next six years.
