Founded in 1861 by Charles Krug, the 27-year old Prussian immigrant came to America with little besides willpower and a willingness to work hard to build the cornerstone of the first winery in the Napa Valley. He became the major local winery figure of his era, greatly influencing Napa Valley's development as a world-renown wine producing region.
Now under the guidance of Peter Mondavi Sr., the Charles Krug Winery honors its roots while forging ahead to the future. From the Wild West to the twenty-first century, relatively crude beginnings gave way to the finest form of winemaking.
This Yountville Cabernet Sauvignon provokes aromas of anise and pomegranate that melds with smoky overtones. On the palate, flavors of ripe red berries and hickory bring out hints of nutmeg. Well balanced oak gives way to smooth, rich finish for this exceptional wine.
