RATINGS

94The Wine Advocate

...gorgeous integration of fruit, acidity and tannin. This is an especially silky, textured wine for Knights Valley. Blue and black fruit, grilled herbs, tobacco, sage and rosemary...succulent, round Cabernet Sauvignon...

94Wine Spectator

Strikingly rich and layered, this is beautifully balanced, elegant and graceful, offering a tremendous mix of blackberry, mocha, melted black licorice and currant, ending with firm, grainy tannins. The push of ripe fruit is long...

92Wine Enthusiast

Gobs of jammy blackberry and cherry fruit mark this dynamic young wine, along with enticing notes of spice, mocha and toasty oak. The tannins are thick, but velvety, making it drinkable now...shows true Mayacamas Mountain intensity.

90+ Stephen Tanzer

...scents of blackberry, mocha and menthol...lovely shape and restraint to the dark berry, bitter chocolate and licorice flavors...require at least a couple years in bottle to express itself...supple tannins and subtle lingering sweetness.

PRODUCER

Beringer

Beringer Vineyards is one of the oldest wine estates in California, having been founded in 1876 by German immigrant brothers, Jacob and Frederick Beringer. The brothers wanted to create a wine estate like the kind they admired in the Rhine Valley, and the Victorian mansion they built on their new property remains one of the most picturesque mansions in the Napa Valley. It is on the National Register of Historic Places and is a California Historical Landmark. 1971 the Jacobs family sold the estate to the Nestle food group, and in 1996 the estate was purchased by Foster’s Group, an Australian conglomerate specializing in beer and soft drinks. In 2011 Foster's spun off the winemaking division, which is today called Treasury Wine Estates. Beringer owns 3,000 acres in Napa Valley and nearby areas, and produces nearly 500,000 cases annually. Beringer’s signatures wines are its Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignons and Chardonnays. For many years the highly regarded Ed Sbragia was Beringer’s winemaker. The chief winemaker is Mark Beringer, great-great-grandson of Jacob Beringer.

TYPE

Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
