Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve

Wine Details

Wine Description

(2006 Vintage) The Beringer reserve vineyards offer Cabernet of such quality that a minimalist approach to winemaking has long defined this special blend. Vinifying the fruit from each vineyard separately, Laurie used tailored pump-over techniques for optimal extraction, and then aged the wines in hand-selected, custom-toasted barrels of French Nevers oak. Each lot was aged for almost two years before selection of the final blend, to allow each vineyard to express the depth of its unique terroir. The final blend has aromas of currant, nutmeg and a hint of licorice. Flavors of cassis, raspberry and cocoa are surrounded by refined tannins and a remarkably elegant, supple finish.

    The with was tawny colored around the edges. Not much fruit left on the nose, mainly oaky and earthy smells. Tasted tired, slightly past it's prime but still good structure and enjoyable. Tasted Aug 2010.
