“Having purchased Beringer Private Reserves for many years, I can attest that they age incredibly well.” – Robert M. Parker Jr.
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 Mark Beringer has a huge and diverse set of colors to paint with to assemble this blend, and he 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.
“The spice and walnut aromas are so enticing. Undertones of blackberries and black truffles. Full-bodied, dense and layered with fantastic tension and seamless tannins. It goes on for minutes. All about classic structure and beauty.” – James Suckling
For its remarkable track record, its utterly seamless and luxuriant palate, its capacity to age, and its remarkable critical rating, this wine has our strongest recommendation. Act fast though—2015 was a short but excellent crop, and much less wine was made!
Over the past 141 years, Beringer has built its name on quality and consistency. The oldest continuously operating winery in Napa Valley (they used a federal license during Prohibition that allowed them to make wine for religious purposes), they’ve been instrumental in both the development of Napa’s international reputation while simultaneously serving as a critical link to its past.
