Tasting Notes: With aromas of wild berry and black cherry, this wine displays flavors of cherry and berry with a slight nuance of cracked pepper and a hint of leather. Well balanced with firm tannins and an elegant structure, our Zinfandel can be enjoyed now, or held until it matures to a polished fruition.
Food Pairings: The Charles Krug 1998 Napa Valley Zinfandel is a wonderful accompaniment to lamb dishes, filet mignon, roast duck, pastas with red sauce, salads with raspberry vinaigrette, and chocolate desserts.
The Charles Krug Winery was established in 1861 as the first winery in the Napa Valley by Prussian-born visionary and revolutionary Charles Krug. Today the winery focuses on handcrafted Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux varieties grown within with Napa Valley appellations and sub-appellations. The winery remains under the stewardship of the Peter Mondavi Sr Family, who purchased the historic winery in 1943. Peter Mondavi Sr remains at the helm of the winery, with day-to-day operations handled by his two sons Marc and Peter Jr.
