Charles Krug Chardonnay 2021 / 750 ml.

Item#: 73844

RP8888 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 4th May 2023
Roughly half barrel fermented, the 2021 Chardonnay Carneros offers up hints of pencilly oak on the nose, accenting pear, melon and pineapple notes. It’s medium-bodied, plump and slightly creamy on the palate, then finishes crisp, on a more citrusy note. Enjoy it over the next couple of years. (Joe Czerwinski)
WE8888 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 9/1/2023
Well-concentrated and ripe-tasting, this full-bodied wine feels soft and smooth in texture while delivering poached pear and peach syrup flavors. (Jim Gordon)

Where It's From

Region / California

View more wines from California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

Country / United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.

RP8888 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 4th May 2023
Primarily from the family’s Saint Helena estate vineyard, the 2022 Sauvignon Blanc offers up some pungent hints of boxwood to go with more tropical notions of guava, fig and grapefruit. It’s medium-bodied on the palate, streamlined and clean, with a crisp, mouthwatering finish and hints of green apple. (Joe Czerwinski)

A fine wine made for an attractive price, this opens in rich, perfumed brambles of berry and cherry, with a side note of cassis. An herbal undertone provides varietal character around soft, supple tannins and rounded approachability.
SP8989 pts. - Wine Spectator - Web only – 2021
Ripe and enticing, with a soft-edged core of blackberry, raspberry and black cherry preserves, backed by sweet toast and mulled spice notes. A sassafras hint enlivens the finish. Drink now through 2023. 38,000 cases made.

The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is gorgous. Bright and vibrant, the 2019 offers a compelling mix of inky red fruit, blood orange and exotic spice, all in a style that marries richness with energy. In that sense, it is a super-classic 2019 Napa Valley Cabernet. (Antonio Galloni)

A fragrant nose of blackberries, blueberries, dried thyme and cigar box. Full body with plush tannins. Round and creamy with a velvety texture. Chocolate and dark fruit at the finish. Really attractive, clear fruit at the end. Currants and black cherries. Drink from 2023.
SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 31, 2021
This has showy and tasty fruit, with bright waves of cassis, boysenberry pâte de fruit and anise rolling through. Juicy through the finish with a subtle graphite edge for balance. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Merlot. Drink now through 2030. 2,800 cases made. (James Molesworth)

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon has a nose of cassis, blackberries and plums with bay leaves and tapenade. The palate is medium-bodied, soft and juicy with nice freshness and an uncomplicated finish.

Softly layered in dense flavors of blueberry, mocha and baking spice, this is a food-friendly wine, with supple tannins and integrated oak. It holds its full-bodied weight and concentration well, adding 11% Cabernet Sauvignon into the mix.

This is perfumed with notes of yuzu, white peaches, chamomile, jasmine and beeswax. Medium- to full-bodied and lean with sleek texture and crunchy acidity. Juicy, attractive and easy to drink. Drink now. (James Suckling)
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Apr 30, 2024
Juicy and bright, with fresh acidity, showing good intensity to the lemon curd and tangerine flavors at the core. Delivers elegant details of vanilla custard, spices and lemon blossoms on a round, supple frame. Drink now. 2,800 cases made. (MaryAnn Worobiec)
RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Mar 2023
The nose of the 2021 Chardonnay is marked by scents of pencil shavings and lemon squares, plus hints of white peaches and flower shop greens. Aged 10 months in 40% new French oak, it’s medium-bodied and tight on the palate, with a crispness and focus not always apparent in Napa Chards. It seems a bit different in style than the 2019 but equally good. (Joe Czerwinski)
