Charles Krug Napa Valley Merlot
Very good and vibrant. Balanced, rich and polished with ripe currant and black cherry flavors. This fine wine offers a supple tannin structure and a medley of vanilla, chocolate and spice notes in its lingering finish. Tight black core, with some black pepper, herbs and fine acidity. Goes well with steak.
