I have a 1948 Charles Krug Napa, Cab and am interested in opinions of its value.

Any one want to chime in?

Zip unless you can prove impeccable storage. Even then, it has only collector value -- the wine is from a ho hum vintage year and is long since dead.

I had a 1955 in 1995 that was still alive, but just barely.

It has been stored in our cellar, but I doubt it would be worth drinking at this age. I was hoping it would have some keep sake antiquity value since Charles Krug was the first winery in Napa.

If you haven't already I would contact the winery. They might be interested in it for display purposes if the bottle/label are in good shape.
