Charles Krug Vintage Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, Napa, USA
Charles Krug Winery
Dry red wine, 75cl. Full bodied 99% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Petit Verdot blend from Napa, USA. 15.4% ABV.
First produced in 1944, the Vintage Selection Cabernet Sauvgnon is the ultimate expression of the Charles Krug portfolio, an elegant, artfully balanced wine that has stood the test of time. The 2016 release incorporates pristine fruit from three flagship vineyards: Voltz (39%) and Slinsen (32%) in Yountville and Cold Springs (29%) on Howell Mountain. This marks the first time in 75 years that mountain fruit has been incorporated into the winery's signature offering. The finished wine features inviting aromas of black fruit, toasted caramel and vanilla seamlessly integrated with flavours of black cherry, boysenberry and tobacco that linger on the long finish.
