Charles Krug Winery Peter Mondavi Family Cabernet Sauvignon Yountville 2007
Good. Well made. Solid.
Very smooth wine. Not overpowering at all. Can pair with a meal or drink on its own.
Mild Cabernet. Great with red sauce!
Very well structured. Not as hot or tannic as other Cabs from Napa. A nice "earthy" compliment to the medium to full bodied richness....probably due to the Merlot, Cab Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec, as well as the Syrah and Petit Sirah that all together makes up 18% of its blend. Enjoyed it much more than I expected...will buy it again. Good value for the $19.99 price.
Hello good wine
External Reviews for Charles Krug Winery Peter Mondavi Family Cabernet Sauvignon Yountville
This wine is by far, one of the best-value, lowest priced Cabernets from an elite Napa Valley sub-appellation. Established in 1998, Yountville AVA is nestled between the Vaca and Mayacamas Mountain ranges bordering Oakville and the Stag’s Leap District. The soils here are gravely and deep and the temperatures are some of the coolest in the entire Valley. This gives Cabernet a long slow growing season where the grapes turn out deeply concentrated and well-structured. Many experts rank Yountville wines among the best of Napa Valley. This wine shows why. A blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot, 3% Syrah, 1% Malbec, 1% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petite Syrah aged 20 months in French and American oak barrels. It's brimming with berries, dark chocolate and roasted nut flavors that are ripe and resounding.
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 6-8 years. It is an excellent value.
Our Peter Mondavi Family Cabernet Sauvignon is supple and harmonious Aromas of dark chocolate, orange peel and roasted chestnuts combine with wild berries, coffee and peanut brittle flavors. The 2007
Our Peter Mondavi Family Cabernet Sauvignon is supple and harmonious Aromas of dark chocolate, orange peel and roasted chestnuts combine with wild berries, coffee and peanut brittle flavors. The 2007 season began dry, about 60% of normal precipitation with some very cold days and single-digit night time 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 remained cool, with few days topping 100degrees except for a brief heat spike around Labor Day. Clusters, as well as individual berries, were notably smaller in all varieties due to the dry season. - Winery
Nose of tobacco, blackberry, faint pepper and dill. Dense on the palate with cassis-like fruit and plenty of oak. Shows depth, but is maybe just a bit one-dimensional. Good balance, with dry, even tannins. Better in a few years.
Tangy and fresh, with black currant, boysenberry and cotton candy notes that are firm, ripe and focused, lingering in the finish. Drink now through 2005.
With rare exceptions, Charles Krug has been turning out some of the most drinkable Cabernets in Napa Valley without gouging customers on price. This '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.
