Charles Krug Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Ripe and juicy in feel, but with a sense of purity and restraint, as the cassis, cherry puree and raspberry notes stream through in unison, picking up light anise, singed alder and iron details. The long finish is tightly focused. Best from 2020 through 2028. 38,935 cases made.
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with baked blackcurrants, crushed black berries and chocolate-covered cherries scents with hints of dried mint, bay leaves and pencil shavings. Full-bodied and packed with plenty of juicy fruit, it has a chewy frame and uncomplicated finish.
