The Peter Mondavi Family Generations is a tribute to family tradition and commitment to quality. A selective blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petit Verdot, 3% Malbec and 1% Syrah creates a balanced wine that showcases its strength and elegance. This blend was aged for 23 months in French oak barrels. Aromas of espresso and nutmeg lead to the rich, plush red fruit flavors of black cherry and blueberry jam before finishing with grace and style.

Reviews:

"The 2012 Proprietary Red Blend Family Reserve Generations honors four generations of Mondavis who have been the backbone of the Charles Krug Winery. Composed of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Malbec, 5% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, this beauty reveals lots of blueberry, mulberry and blue fruits, a dense ruby/purple color, sweet tannins, and a medium to full-bodied, elegant yet substantial style. With no hard edges, this seamless stunner is a top example of not only 2012, but of Charles Krug’s resurgence in the marketplace as a serious player. Drink it over the next 10-12 years." -Rated 91, Wine Spectator
