Charles Krug Vintage Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|California, Napa Valley
Intense boysenberry, raspberry and blackberry pâte de fruit flavors drive through, flanked with an applewood note and carried by a deeply imbedded graphite spine. Licorice snap note then echoes on the finish. Best from 2022 through 2032. 900 cases made.
Made entirely varietal and aged 20 months in French oak, this wine tastes of leather, cigar box and grippy blue fruit. Soft and ripe, it has a touch of tension amidst the powerful density and voluptuous style.
