2000 Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon Quarry Vineyard Napa Valley

With Cabernet of this quality, Ed and Laurie believe in taking a minimalist approach to winemaking. Vinifying the fruit from each vineyard separately, the winemaking team used tailored pump-over techniques for optimal extraction, and then aged the wines for approximately two years in hand-selected, custom-toasted barrels of new French Nevers oak from coopers with whom they have long-established relationships.

VINTAGE
The 2000 vintage saw winter rains leading into a dry, mild March. Rains late into the growing season delayed bloom and set in the vineyards. A cool summer with few heat spikes followed by a warm September and October delivered nearly perfect conditions. Harvest was later than usual, providing extended hang time that resulted in excellent tannin development and balanced acids in a slightly larger than average crop.

VINEYARDS
Quarry Vineyard, in the Rutherford AVA, is located on the eastern side of the Valley on the site of an old quarry with soils of decomposed volcanic “Tuff,” or compressed ash, that are rocky and extremely low in nutrients. The Quarry Cabernet reveals hallmark Rutherford notes of earthy, woodsy aromas. The 2000 Quarry has a round mouthfeel, with a juicy core of raspberry fruit and aromas of mint and cocoa.
