A true Bordeaux Blend with Cabernet Sauvignon as the base grape. Black fruits, and a touch of violet open on the palate. Blackberry on the palate, with driving mineral and graphite. Supple tannin on the palate, adding structure and depth. Excellent! A killer deal under $40.
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.
A firm and very silky red with a layered mouth feel and lots of depth and length. Polished and juicy. Rich, yet structured. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, petit verdot, malbec and cabernet franc. Drink or hold.
The 2017 Quantum checks in as a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 5% Petite Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc, and the balance Malbec. It was brought up in 67% new French oak and has impressive black currants, graphite, and crushed flower-like aromatics. It's balanced, has a solid mid-palate, and ripe, present tannins, and is beautifully done. Drink bottles any time over the coming 15+ years.
