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.

(the first vintage for this bottling; a selection of the best blocks, mostly on rockier soil, and the best barrels): Syrupy aromas of black plum and licorice; slightly porty. Fat, ripe and rich, with a dusty Knights Valley note adding complexity to the black plum and dark chocolate flavors. Shows more texture and extract than the basic Knights Valley cabernet but the wine's porty aspect makes it less easy to drink today. Finishes with substantial broad tannins.
