Charles Krug – Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 – Cold Spring Vineyard – Howell Mountain – Limited Release – Napa Valley

(97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot) The nose is harmonious and elegant. It reveals notes of blackberry, violet and slight notes of cassis associated with slight notes of licorice and a touch of black cherry. The palate is fruity, mineral, balanced, supple, fleshy, fat and offers a nice slightly creamy matter. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of blackberry and cassis combined with touches of cherry, red fruit as well as slight woody notes in the background. Tannins are fine and slightly firm.
