About Charles Krug 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, Napa Valley


Located in Yountville, Charles Krug winery has been in existence since the mid-1800's but its history in Napa Valley is most interesting because it was the winery that was purchased by Cesare Mondavi; father of Robert and Peter. Peter stayed while Robert moved on. But today this Cabernet is by far, one of the best-value, lowest priced Cabs from an elite Napa Valley estate that you can buy. 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 2016 is showing the intensity and quality of this outstanding vintage. 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec aged 18 months in French oak barrels.


This 2016 has 94 point score on Cellar Tracker. It shows ripe black cherry, blackberry and black currant with hints of dried blueberry and cocoa. A sturdy structure and generous black fruits lend definition to a long, memorable finish.
