    Winemaker's Notes:

    Since 1944, Charles Krug's flagship wine, Vintage Selection Cabernet Sauvignon, has been crafted only when the vintage is optimum. This vintage provided a real melange of favorable conditions that yielded aromas of nutmeg, brown sugar, vanilla bean and black cherries. Luscious flavors of roasted chestnuts, blueberry jam and cranberry apple compliment the soft chewy texture and integrated toasty oak nuances.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The dense ruby/purple-colored 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage Selection Estate reveals sweet aromas of creme de cassis, cedarwood and spice box in its classic Bordeaux Pauillac-like personality. Medium to full-bodied with sweet tannins, this rich, layered 2008 exhibits abundant black fruit notes intertwined with hints of espresso and earth. Approachable now, it should drink well for two decades.
