Bell 2010 Clone 6 Unfiltered Cabernet Sauvginon Rutherford Napa Valley

WA 90 Pts - According to Robert Parker - The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 6 from Rutherford boasts an inky/purple color along with beautiful aromas of licorice, creme de cassis and spice with serious intensity of richness lurking behind the aromatics. Full-bodied with an earthy character, this 2010 could develop the famed Rutherford dust character, which will only enhance the large-scaled depth and ripeness in the mouth. With a long finish, this young Cabernet requires further bottle age for its full complexity to emerge. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2025.

Winemakers Notes - The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, Clone 6 is our 20th vintage. The wine lives up to it long history with its deep red color and purple hue, and smooth and supple tannins, which give the wine the structure to hold loads of blackberry, dark chocolate and plum. Aging in French oak brings a polished finish of vanilla and cedar to the wine. In the glass, aromas of cassis and dark fruit abound with an undertone of blueberry. Concentrated flavors, abundant fruit, lively acidity and a long, persistent finish present a finely balanced wine consistent with the classic Bordeaux style of our prior releases. 14.7% ABV.

Bella Vetta 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain Ami's Vineyard

CG 90 Pts. - According to the Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine - Howell Mountain Cabernets often come with an extra measure of toughness, but this well-made wine is marked by polish instead. It leads with aromas of cassis, black cherries and caramel, and, while it does not lack for varietal extract, it is supple and nicely rounded in feel. It is rich without being in any way brawny, and it is one to tag for drinking some three to five years hence.

Winemaker Notes - Our 2007 Ami's Vineyard Cabernet is effusive with an abundance of floral overtones that are beautifully balanced with intense fruit aromas of blackberry, raspberry and ripe red cherries. This delightful concentration of fruit is accented with layers of dark chocolate and aromatic spices that pours into a palate that is pure silk and satin and full of the lush berry fruit promised in the aromas. The finish is long and lingering and the result is a wine that is both elegant and concentrated. This wine is an exceptional culmination of terroir and expertise! Rated 90+

Beringer 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Private Reserve

WA 91 Pts - WS 90Pts - Tasting Notes - According to the Wine Advocate the 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve reveals more concentration as well as higher tannin than the 1995. I know it is a trade-off, but I suspect this vintage will not be as sexy in its youthfulness as the 1995. The black ruby/purple-colored 1996 offers more licorice, in addition to the obvious levels of pain grille, jammy black currant fruit, and spice notes. Structured, full-bodied, and powerful, this may be a Private Reserve to cellar for several years, and consume over the subsequent 15-18. I cannot recall a disappointing vintage of the Private Reserve. A production of 10,000-15,000 cases makes the wine's outstanding quality even more enviable. By the way, statisticians should note that the Private Reserve is always at least 97% Cabernet Sauvignon, and aged for 22-24 months in 100% new French oak. One of the common threads I find in the wines is a smoky, chocolatey, licorice character that works well with the lavish quantities of fruit and glycerin these wines possess. One of the safest choices a consumer can make, the Private Reserve has been a consistently fine and accurate representation of Cabernet's varietal characteristics.Price: $149.95

Beringer 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Private Reserve

WA 92pts Winemaker Notes - With Cabernet of this quality, Ed believes in taking a minimalist approach to winemaking. Vinifying the fruit from each vineyard separately, Ed and his long-time winemaking partner Laurie Hook used gentle pump-over techniques for optimal extraction, and then aged the wines in hand-selected, custom-toasted barrels of new French Nevers oak from coopers with whom Ed has long-established relationships. The winemakers put the wines through 100-percent malolactic fermentation for added complexity and softness, and aged them just over two years before Ed selected the blend that he felt layers the personalities of the vineyards into a harmonious whole. The final blend showcases aromas of black cherry, black plum, cedar, mint and dark chocolate. Black fruit, vanilla and toasty brown spices linger on the palate as ripe supple tannins extend throughout the long finish.Price: $79.95

As you drive over the mountain from St. Helena, the valley opens up before your eyes and you immediately feel transported to another time, where things are slower and more rustic. I always hope to do justice to the vineyard with this wine and I believe the 2006 has done so – it delivers great complexity and depth while still retaining a rough-hewn charm.

A big heat wave in July was the salient weather factor in this vintage. The harvest began early and continued for five weeks. Abundant smoke, chocolate, espresso roast, cassis and mocha characteristics are found in this full-bodied, powerful, layered Cabernet.

Beringer 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley

Winemaker Notes - To maintain the unique characteristics of the different lots from varying areas of the vineyard, Laurie kept them all separate through vinification and aging. Extended maceration created larger tannins to enhance the lush mouthfeel of the blend and extracted a maximum of color, aromas and flavors. The wines were then aged in small French Nevers oak barrels for roughly a year. After aging, Laurie blended the lots of Cabernet Sauvignon to highlight Knights Valley's characteristically bright black cherry fruit. A bit of Merlot was added to round out the mid-palate, and a touch of Cabernet Franc lifts the aromatics of the wine and delivers an elegant finish.Price: $16.95

Beringer 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Private Reserve

IWC 93 WS 92 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - Patience required for this taut, dense, focused effort, with layers of mineral, cedar, dried berry, black licorice and espresso. Shows great structure and focus, yet this is very tight and backward now. Best from 2013 through 2023. 1,211 cases made.

According to the International Wine Cellar - (99% cabernet sauvignon and 1% petit verdot): Good bright, deep ruby. Captivating aromas of cassis, licorice and graphite. Suave and vibrant, with lovely definition to the flavors of cassis, violet, dark chocolate and minerals. Densely packed, very long wine with a serious structure for aging. Mostly from St. Helena fruit; the '07 version was mostly from Howell Mountain. Just 1,200 cases were bottled, the lowest total ever for this consistently outstanding cabernet.

According to Wine Enthusiast - There’s a dusty, tannic dryness to this wine that makes it tough to drink now. Deep down inside is a ripe core of blackberries, as juicy and sweet as if they were freshly picked on a hot summer day. All the signs are that this Cabernet is ageable. Give it until 2015 and see what it’s doing.

According to Wine Advocate - The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve is a complete, layered wine. An open, expressive bouquet leads to dark red cherries, savory herbs, minerals, graphite and menthol. Firm yet well-integrated tannins frame the long finish. This, too, could use additional bottle age to come together. The fruit was predominantly sourced from the Home Vineyard in St. Helena. The final blend includes a touch of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.


Winemaker Notes - The 2008 Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon shows youthful characters of fresh blackberry, black cherry and blueberry, and has bright characteristics of blackberry and blueberry aromas, accented by notes of toast, graphite, cedar and brown spices. The palette is rich and supple with seamless, mouth-coating tannins. The rich, juicy fruit core is highlighted by flavors of cassis, blackberry, sweet cocoa and a light savory note. A nice acidity lifts the fruit and carries it into a prolonged, pleasing finish. Rated 90+

Beringer 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve Napa Valley

IWC 93+ WA 93 WS 91 Pts - According to International Wine Cellar - Good full ruby. Pure but tight nose shows a medicinal reserve. Then tight and penetrating in the mouth, with noteworthy intensity to the blackberry and menthol flavors. Much less open and showy today than the Bancroft cabernet, revealing little in the way of easy sweetness. This seriously structured wine finishes with substantial firm tannins, excellent breadth and a suggestion of chocolatey richness, and should be long-lived. "A blend of the best of the best," according to winemaker Laurie Hook, who added that she's looking for "intensity, complexity, depth, persistence, elegance.

According to Wine Advocate - The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve is a beautifully balanced wine. Firm yet well-integrated tannins frame a core of dark red berries, flowers, mint, spices and licorice. The Reserve shows lovely inner perfume and mid-palate juiciness. It should drink well with a minimum of cellaring. The main vineyards in the 2009 are Home (37%), Lampyridae (23%), Vogt (14%), Chabot (11%) and Rancho del Oso (9%). Each lot was aged separately for about two years before the final blend was assembled. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029.

According to Wine Spectator - An intense and rustic red, offering a rangy mix of dried berry, earth, leather, roasted herb and tobacco leaf flavors. A cool-year Cabernet that should benefit from cellaring, yet will always show its sturdy build. Best from 2014 through 2026. 5,315 cases made.

Beringer 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley

WA 91+ - According to Wine Advocate - Beringer’s 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon (Knights Valley) is endowed with serious minerality and tension. Firm tannins support an expressive core of dark red fruit, grilled herbs, asphalt and savory herbs, all of which come to life in a vibrant Cabernet Sauvignon long on personality and character. This is a serious wine for the money. Like so many wines in this vintage, it has tons of energy and vibrancy. If opened within the next few years, the 2010 is likely to require decanting to open up.

According to Wine Spectator - Pure and clean, offering excellent fruit complexity, with wild berry, blueberry, spice and cedar flavors, firm tannins and good length. Drink now through 2018. 85,000 cases made.

Chocolate, mocha, plums and spices come to life in this fleshy, mid-weight wine.

Beringer 2011 Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma

AG 91 Pts - According to Antonio Galloni - The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley is once again one of the most distinctive wines in the Beringer portfolio. Graphite, incense, smoke, crushed rocks and dark plums meld together in the glass. Intense savory and nuanced, the 2011 stands out for its complexity and pedigree. The Knights Valley Cabernet is one of the very finest California wines readers will find in its price range. Beringer skipped their Reserve Cabernet in 2011; all the best fruit went into the straight Knights Valley bottling, of which there are a whopping 70,000 cases to go around.

According to Wine Spectator - Well-proportioned, this shows an edge of dried earth, herb and leather, with a vanilla bean accent to the dried berry notes. Very complete, but needs time. Drink now through 2022.

Winemakers Notes - Aromas of blueberry, dark plum, baking spices, sweet licorice, brioche, and a hint of graphite. The palate presents ripe flavors of boysenberry and ripe blue fruit, accented by soft and supple tannins, and a long, black fruit-infused finish. Rated 90+

Beringer 2012 Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

WS 90 AG 90 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - Easy to approach yet deceptively complex, with ripe red and dark berry, floral and peppery spice notes. The creamy, supple texture invites drinking. Drink now through 2023.

According to Antonio Galloni - The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley is especially deep and powerful in this vintage. Smoke, game, incense, leather, pomegranate, spice and red cherries are some of the many notes that inform this striking Cabernet from Sonoma's Knights Valley, a fertile hunting ground for savory, mineral-driven wines full of character. This is a fabulous wine for the money, but with a production of 90,000 cases, winemaker Laurie Hook shows to achieve quality and value with scale, something that is much harder than it looks.

According to Robert Parker - Beringer has been doing a beautiful job in this area, and the medium-bodied 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley represents fair value. Its deep ruby/plum color is accompanied by notes of chocolate, toast, blackcurrants and black cherries offered in a lush, sexy, fruit-driven style. It should drink nicely for 7-8 years.

Winemakers Notes - Aromas of blueberry, dark plum, baking spices, sweet licorice, brioche, and a hint of graphite.
