Nice crisp burgundian style chard. Well balanced but for the pp, could have used bit more on the nose and finish for me. Still has a long life ahead.

deep rich fruit. Opened very quickly. Nicely concentrated but also plenty of depth and character. Seems a real bargain for $32.

Seemed to open up more than the first two bottles. Much more to my liking. Maybe has more life left than first thought.

Simply fantastic bottle, from magnum. Score was more of a number versus expectations as opposed to a straight score. Not many 81s of this caliber left. I was in college. Hits all the classic notes. Wonderful from the nose to the finish. Was easily the hit of the night.

1991 Charles Krug Winery (Peter Mondavi Family) Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage Selection

Napa Valley more

5/3/2015 - 1961Vintage wrote: 92 points

Had via magnum. Took about 30 minutes for initial funk to blow off revealing deep red fruit and decent balance for a wine of this vintage. Likely at or past peak. Would drikn if I had em. Had next to 1981 Pine Ridge cab(mag)...both showed very well.

Agree with the last review. Great cab doesn't have to smack you in the face. Out of magnum 28/40 was one of the best Cali cabs that I have ever had...and at a much more attractive price point as well. Not cheap but goes toe to toe with wines 2-3x the tariff easily.

Seriously good. Great way to describe this. Luscious and full of finesse. Dont agree on the remaining life. Would think maybe 3-4 years.

Not nearly as bad as the previous review suggested. Found this to be a cab wanna be with several positive traits, just not enough of them to stand out. This is probably a case where the brand has left the wine in its dust.

Perhaps one of the best $22 bottles ever! Nice full body with sexy fruit notes and fantastic balance. Bought this at the base of the ruins in Agrigento at an out door tasting run by the family of the winery.
