The best lots from the reserve vineyards come together in this small-production Private Reserve, demonstrating the full potential of Napa’s prized terroir. 2017 shows beautiful purity of fruit, with enticing aromas of currant and cassis. A big, rich palate is marked by dark chocolate flavors and extremely fine tannins that cruise to a great finish. Polished and sophisticated, this could cellar for two decades without batting an eyelash.

Over the past 141 years, Beringer has built its name on quality and consistency.

This shows really beautiful purity of fruit with polish and sophistication. The currant and cassis aromas are so enticing and really reflect the name of the wine. Medium to full body. Extremely fine tannins. Shows a level of freshness and agility that caresses the palate. Delicate and beautiful. Mostly Howell Mountain. Drink or hold.
