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.
90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2011
(includes 4% each cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc; these vines were replanted in the late '90s): Good red-ruby. Minerals, lead pencil, loam and currant on the nose. Sweet, ripe and rather easygoing, with attractive flavors of redcurrant, plum, mint, spices and chocolate. A bit fresher than the 2006 version but I wanted a bit more intensity. Finishes with broad tannins and lingering sweetness.
