85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petite Verdot, 3% Syrah, 2% Malbec, 2% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petite Sirah, 1% Merlot Aged 18 months in French and American oak 14.5% alcohol A light little on the nose with vanilla and herb tones framing sour cherry and cassis fruit. There’s a bit more obvious sweetness from the oak here than with the Merlot and a spice component that accentuates a meaty, beefiness on the nose. Very soft in the mouth, with a broad feel, but somewhat light bodied.. This has good varietal character but finishes a bit short. It has an easygoing style full of red fruits but best over the short term. 86pts

Wine Spectator Rating: 91/100 It was delicous and really drinks above it's price. This should age nicely and be at a peak by 2014. An impressively cool and brisk cabernet, that needs a good 15+ minutes decanted to open up to it's full intensity. The wine expands into deep purple-black color that is mouth watering to look at and great on the palet with a wonderful veal chop, this was my best friend for the evening. It contains a traditional palet of the Mondavi family. This was a superb wine for its price range with fruit and potent tannins, which bring out some warmth to balance the fresh, minty aspects of the flavor. Purchased at Morrell in NYC. Great Store, Great Wine Bar!!! A must do when you are in town.

Great bang for your buck. Very fruit and oak forward, but no vanilla. Nose of some nice bacon fat. Definitely does not taste $20. Comparable in quality to wines more than double the price. Will only get better with age.

Strawberry and plums on the nose. Deeper in the mouth with flavors of licorice and nutmeg, before giving way to sweet fruits and a dry woodsy finish.

Our signature style Sauvignon Blanc preserves the vibrant flavors found in the fruit from the night it was harvested through the time this bottle is opened. Through delicate fruit handling and the use of stainless steel tanks, the aromas and flavors of guava, grapefruit and melon flavors shine through. - Winery

This wine is by far, one of the best-value, lowest priced Cabernets from an elite Napa Valley sub-appellation. The historic Charles Krug Winery was first established back in 1861. Over a century later, with the establishment of the Yountville AVA, nestled between the Vaca and Mayacamas Mountains and bordering Oakville and Stag’s Leap District, they're still turning out world class wines from the deep gravelly soils of their estate vineyards. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored this 2006 91 points saying "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."

Wine Tasting NotesThis Cabernet, grown predominately in the Yountville appellation, tempts your senses with aromas of cherries, currants, and cola. On the palate flavors of chocolate and raspberry are married with oak for a lingering finish.

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

Winemaker's Notes: Nestled between the Vaca and Mayacamas Mountain ranges, the Yountville appellation provides complexity and finesse to our Peter Mondavi Family Cabernet Sauvignon. Aromas of cassis, black cherry and roasted coffee open to flavors of dark cherries, cocoa and black licorice. Robust and full bodied, this wine has chewy tannins and a long, intense finish.
