About Charles Krug 2017 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 2017 is a bend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 3% Petite Syrah aged 16 months in French oak.

Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored this 91 points saying "This wine offers tremendous value and is made in large enough quantities for wide distribution, adding to its appeal. Juicy in flavors of plum, cassis and cherry, it is balanced by soft tannins and well-integrated oak."
