Vogt vineyard, on Howell Mountain, has restrictive, volcanic soils that foster exceptionally intense grapes: perfect for an exceptional intense Cabernet Sauvignon! This full-bodied beauty may have seemed reserved at first, but she’s showing her power now, with aromas of walnut shell, dark earth, and mounds of luscious black and blue fruit accentuated by ripe tannins.
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.
Aromas of walnut shell and dark earth and black fruits. Blueberries, too. Full-bodied, round and juicy. Love the richness and brightness of this wine. Dense and poised. Tight and reserved. Needs two or three years to open.
