Charles Krug Winery Peter Mondavi Family Pinot Noir Carneros 2004
Thick berry, licorice, and fruity nose. Slightly hot, but pleasant in the mouth. Good thick raisin and prune fruits, very thick, extracted, fruity and wine. Good, aged tannins well balanced. Strong licorice finish and less minerality than i often see in a napa cab, but very nice for the price. (i only paid $21)Add winemaker's notes
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

Fantastic blend of ten top Krug clones, full flavor, great balance, supple tanins and a long lingering finish... Smoked blackberry jam...

Charles Krug Cabernet Sauvignon 2004 Ltd Lincoln Ranch Family Reserve and all other wine from Charles Krug are readily available to ship at discount prices. We carry many premium wine from across the world.
Since 1944 our Peter Mondavi Family flagship Vintage Selection Cabernet Sauvignon has been crafted only when the vintage is optimum. Multiple clonal selections of cabernet fruit grown primarily on our estate vineyards, go through an extended fermentation for 30 days in small lots. This blend exhibits aromas of black pepper, barrel spice and orange peel while soft supple tannins are married with ripe cherry and rich plum flavors.
91 Points - Best Buy and 5-Star Champion of Value - Wine & Spirits Magazine"An impressively cool and brisk cabernet, predominantly from Charles Krug'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 bring out some warmth to balance the fresh, minty aspects of the flavor. Decant a bottle for lamb chops" -August 2009
