Charles Krug Merlot, Napa Valley, 2005
Peter Mondavi family. Napa Valley's first winery established in 1861. Our Peter Mondavi Family Napa Valley Merlot is aged for 17 months in small French oak barrels and expresses wild berry and blueberry aromas, with a touch of roasted pecans. An artful blend of Merlot (94%), Cabernet Franc (4%), Malbec (1%), Cabernet Sauvignon (0.5%), and Petit Verdot (0.5%) compose this balanced wine giving it a chewy texture and an intense yet lengthy finish. Enjoy this wine with dishes such as beef ribs and grilled salmon. Charles Krug, Napa Valley's first winery, established in 1861, has been owned and operated by the Peter Mondavi Family for three generations. Family tradition is the foundation of our winemaking and grape growing on our Napa Valley vineyard estates. Alc. 13.9.% by vol.
