Charles Krug – Generations 2012 – Family Reserve – Napa Valley

(83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Malbec, 5% Petit Verdot, 5% Merlot) The nose is fine, elegant and slightly velvety. It reveals notes of blackberry and plum associated with a few slight notes of flowers, blueberry and oak. The mouth is fat, balanced, supple and has a beautiful silky matter. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of blackberry and plum flesh associated with slight notes of red fruits as well as notes of toasted oak, slight notes of vanilla and very slight notes of dark chocolate. Tannins are fine, firm and young. Good length.
