Generations is a Bordeaux-style blend created to honuor the Krug family's past, present and future.

Aromas of black cherry, coffee bean and blueberry segue to a full-bodied wine with a long finish of ripe berry and toasty creme brulee.

The fruit is night-picked from the estate vineyards in Yountville and aged in new French oak barrels.

Napa Valley received a steady amount of rain during the winter months, saturating the ground and paving the way for the vintage to come. The early and mild spring saw a good berry set, while the rest of the season was marked by some significant heat spikes in June and August with one final spike over Labor Day Weekend, which all combined to make it one of the hotter years on record. While the harvest was slightly smaller than normal - with moderate berry and cluster size - the quality was exceptional.
