Charles Krug Family Reserve Generations 2004
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
A Bordeaux blend based on Cab Sauvignon, this is the winery's Meritage-style bottling. It's an elegant, fairly austere wine in its youth, with pronounced tannins that shield the underlying blackberry, currant and cocoa flavors. Puts an end to the complaints that Napa Cabs are no longer compatible with food. This one is, and should develop bottle complexity over the next six years.
Light on its feet, with a high-toned medley of crisp lemon-lime, grapefruit and grass flavors. Floral and mineral notes weave through the supple finish. Drink now through 2007. 5,516 cases made.
