The Yountville vineyards benefit from cool mornings and maritime breezes that produce intense and complex Cabernet Sauvignon. Our 2013 wine from the vineyards yields aromas of blackberry and currants, cocoa and vanilla. This wine has a firm structure, black fruit flavors and a long, elegant finish.
The Charles Krug Winery was established in 1861 as the first winery in the Napa Valley by Prussian-born visionary and revolutionary Charles Krug. Today the winery focuses on handcrafted Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux varieties grown within with Napa Valley appellations and sub-appellations. The winery remains under the stewardship of the Peter Mondavi Sr Family, who purchased the historic winery in 1943. Peter Mondavi Sr remains at the helm of the winery, with day-to-day operations handled by his two sons Marc and Peter Jr.
