Our 2018 release incorporates pristine fruit from three flagship vineyards. The finished wine features inviting aromas of sweet currant, toasted pecan, vanilla and cocoa nibs; the flavors are blackberry and pastille raspberry, with a touch of violet and cacao. The elegant, creamy texture of the wine leads to a long complex fruit finish. First produced in 1944, Vintage Selection is the ultimate expression of the Charles Krug portfolio, an elegant, artfully balanced wine that has stood the test of time.

Baking spices, earthiness and a lot of ripe dark fruit. Some coffee, bay leaf and a touch of mushroom, too. Full-bodied with ripe-fruit character on the palate, chewy tannins and a juicy mouth-feel. Linear and polished at the finish. Needs some time in bottle. Try in 2022.

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.
