1974 Charles Krug from Napa Valley had a gorgeous silky smooth texture with earthy aromas of dried leaves, forest floor and sweet tobacco. History in a glass!

Still alive, interesting to remember that back in 1961 Cabernet was still rare in Napa, it required dedication, this wine was made in the classic style to age, and it really did.

I don't often travel west... But I like it, and I feel that (I know... Broken record) a blind with the old world style Calis, Bordeaux, an Niagara should happen soon.

Stunning example of a well cellared and epic wine. Time has been good to this wine- great volume, flavors & persistent length. Stunned
