(From 2010 Vintage) The 2010 Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon has enticing aromas of ripe blackberry, fresh cedar, anise and sweet mint. Dense and structured, its supple tannins are complemented by notes of espresso, unsweetened cocoa and a balanced, silky finish.
Cedar vanillin currant. Beautiful velvet glove mid palate and finish. silver bullet and full bodied. 2 minute timed finish. 97 pts parker. Arguably his favorite beringer private reserve cab of all time.
4 hours decant. nose is elegant but light. finish has dark choc but also light. 03/13 6 hours decant. lovely perfumed nose matched by delicate light entry. slightly short finish.
delicious may be the best napa cab I ever had refined and voluptuous complex layers of taste long finish a classic 5/10/10
