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.

Good bright medium ruby. Blackberry, bitter chocolate and licorice aromas and flavors are complemented by sexy new oak. Lush, deep and densely packed, with a retrained sweetness that's not yet showing in a few of Beringer's 2010 vineyard-designated cabernets. But this tactile, chewy wine finishes with plenty of tannic clout for aging. This is every bit as backward today as the Chabot.
