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.

Bright, saturated ruby. Crushed cassis, black cherry, blueberry, bitter chocolate and licorice on the somewhat medicinal nose. Densely packed and extract-rich, with almost peppery acidity giving sharp definition to the black fruit, crushed rock and bitter chocolate flavors. No easy sweetness here. A saline element adds another dimension to this impressively sappy, tactile cabernet. Finishes broad and rich, with a serious tannic spine for aging.
