About Beringer Vineyards
Founded in 1876, Beringer is the oldest continuously operating vineyard in Napa Valley. Head winemaker Laurie Hook directs operations at 14 different vineyards which produce almost as many varieties of wine. Decadently rich Cabernet Sauvignons, lush Merlots and rich, exotic Chardonnays are the standout wines at Beringer.

($75; includes bits of cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc) Good medium ruby. Aromas of plum, dark raspberry and chocolate; slightly liqueur-like. Then fat, full and sweet in the mouth, with concentrated dark fruit and licorice flavors. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and excellent length. This, too, needs time. This vintage is still from old vines, but Beringer is in the process of replanting this vineyard.
