Charles Krug Family Reserve Generations 2013
Generations is a Bordeaux-style blend from our Napa Valley estate vineyards, created to honor our family's past, present and future. Aromas of black cherry, coffee bean and blueberry segue to a full-bodied wine with a long finish of ripe berry and toasty creme brulee
Wine SpectatorWell-proportioned, tight and smoky, with a firm, structured beam of licorice- and blackberry-tinged fruit. Ends with fine-grained tannins and a long, clean finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2030. 3,000 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastThis is a full-throttle, Cabernet Sauvignon-based, Bordeaux-style blend, all from estate-grown grapes. It is huge in velvety texture, though moderate acidity props up the boldness of the blackberry jam and meaty characteristics, all dotted with black-pepper accents.
