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.

($116; about 60% of the blend is now from Howell Mountain fruit) Good bright medium ruby. Knockout nose combines black raspberry, minerals and sweet spices. Lush and creamy, with explosive, fully ripe dark fruit and mineral flavors and terrific back-end lift. Finishes with big, broad, fine-grained tannins and impressive length. The goal here is not to make an early-drinking wine but one with sweet tannins and thoroughly ripe fruit, notes winemaker Laurie Hook, but I find this sexy from the start.
