Beringer Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a Reserve in the true sense of the word. Beringer's access to prime fruit sources is really unmatched by anyone in the Napa Valley. Winemaker Laurie Hook has a huge and diverse set of colors to paint with to assemble this blend, and she pays close attention to each parcel to ensure that it is picked at precisely the right time. Only the very best fruit from Beringer's mountain and valley floor sources goes into this blend. Because the scale of their selectivity is so vast, we see astonishing quality and consistency, year after year.



You can just imagine what they were able to assemble in a year like 2013, one of the top 5 vintages in Napa in the last 50 years. This is a wine to lay in by the case, folks.



Parker rhapsodizes that this is "a classic Napa Cabernet Sauvignon with crème de cassis, graphite, licorice, and a touch of spicy oak. Winemaker Laurie Hook, who has since departed as winemaker, really hit a home run with this beauty. The wine could benefit from 7-10 years cellaring and probably last 30 to 40. When all is said and done, this is an instant classic, the wine full-bodied with oodles of crème de cassis, pen ink, graphite and baking spices. It is multi-dimensional, layered, and one of the all-time great Beringer Private Reserves - and there have been many."
