Charles Krug Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Sourced principally from our five family estates in Yountville, our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon displays cranberry and briary aromas with hints of brown butter and clove. This medium-to-full bodied wine showcases a rich mix of cranberry and black currant flavors set against a beautifully integrated backdrop of lightly toasted oak, all leading to a smooth lingering finish of berries and butter.
A fine wine made for an attractive price, this opens in rich, perfumed brambles of berry and cherry, with a side note of cassis. An herbal undertone provides varietal character around soft, supple tannins and rounded approachability.
Ripe and enticing, with a soft-edged core of blackberry, raspberry and black cherry preserves, backed by sweet toast and mulled spice notes. A sassafras hint enlivens the finish. Drink now through 2023. 38,000 cases made.
