Review: 2012 Charles Krug Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

KRUG_NV_CS_12This well-pedigreed Cabernet offers a ripe, blackberry-laden nose with touches of black pepper and dried herbs. The body is rich and lush with chocolate notes, some coffee bean, and vanilla. The finish is big and fruity, its tannins mellowing with ample time in the glass, leaving behind some notes of tea leaf, charcoal, and cocoa powder. Excellent quality at this price.

    I don’t think that I have ever had any booze with a combination of ingredients in booze that has a combo of black pepper, dried herbs, chocolate, coffee beans, and vanilla. I cannot even imagine what a drink of this would taste like. I will certainly put this on my list of things that I need to have a drink of and to also share with friends and relatives.
