"Offers an assertive mix of flavors, with dried currant, plum, blackberry, dill, cedar and mocha-laced oak. This is well-structured, firming nicely on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot. A new Bordeaux-style blend from Beringer. Drink now through 2022."
-James Laube, WINE SPECTATOR, May 31, 2013
In order to create a blend that highlights the outstanding terroir of Beringer’s many Napa Valley vineyards, Laurie kept each vineyard lot separate from the moment the grapes were harvested, until final blending. In creating Quantum, Laurie was also excited to showcase an interesting mix of varietals with the foundation of Cabernet Sauvignon, the backbone of the Beringer portfolio. The majority of fruit comes from vineyards along the valley floor, along with a smaller portion from Howell Mountain. The Merlot contributes round mouthfeel and soft tannins, Petite Sirah adds spice complexity and texture, and Petit Verdot lends dark, inky fruit notes and rich structure to the blend. The wines were aged in French oak (48% new barrels) for 15 months, and then in bottle for six months.

The 2010 Quantum is full of dark cherry, espresso, tobacco, and leather aromas. Notes of ripe plum, vanilla, and boysenberry jam are accented by a hint of sage and savory brown spices. It is a fleshy, distinctive wine with silken tannins and a lush, rounded profile.
