|The beautiful tasting room at Charles Krug.|
Overall I would rate this wine a solid 9, it's a wonderful example of a classic Cabernet blend, though it's still a bit young and might improve with a bit of time in the cellar. I enjoyed this wine with a lovely appetizer of Scottish salmon crudo followed by Bouillabaisse as a main course. The wine was perfect with the spice of my dinner, but also paired well with the rare filet mignon that my colleague orders. Overall, a great wine with food from a wonderful winery, cheers!
