Wine Advocate Review Rated 91 The 2012 Proprietary Red Blend Family Reserve Generations honors four generations of Mondavis who have been the backbone of the Charles Krug Winery. Composed of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Malbec, 5% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, this beauty reveals lots of blueberry, mulberry and blue fruits, a dense ruby/purple color, sweet tannins, and a medium to full-bodied, elegant yet substantial style. With no hard edges, this seamless stunner is a top example of not only 2012, but of Charles Krug's resurgence in the marketplace as a serious player. Drink it over the next 10-12 years. Wine Tasting Notes This Estate Bottled Generations blend has toasty aromas filled with boysenberry, red currant and brown sugar, and is round and supple in mouthfeel. The chewy tannins and long finish are complemented by blueberry and berry flavors.
