As is fitting a wine honoring Charles Krug, a first sniff of Stone Man unveils bay leaf and dried violets that then unleash firm aromas of cocoa, plum and dried cherry. Baked fruits with brown sugar flavors and a hint of tobacco align with supple texture, spicy oak and a long finish to be remembered - like the man himself.
The Family Reserve label is the hallmark of our elegant and rich wines produced from grapes harvested from specific vineyard blocks located in our prime vineyards. Our Generations is a tribute to three generations of winemaking by the Mondavi Family while the Vintage Selection Cabernet Sauvignon is our Flagship cabernet produced with pride since 1944.
The wine is a tribute to Charles Krug, who established his eponymous winery as the first Napa Valley winery in 1861, a man who led a life of legendary proportions. Born in Prussia in 1825, he fought for independence from Germany in 1848, was jailed for his activism yet freed nine months later in a second uprising. A revolutionary, activist and entrepreneur, he earned the reputation as a man of stone - strong, timeless, enduring - the founder of winemaking in the Napa Valley. We invite you to enjoy our Stone Man Cabernet Sauvignon, a wine worthy of honoring Charles Krug and one that shares many of his best characteristics.
