93 POINTS, Wine Advocate

"Our Bancroft Merlot has aromas of ripe blue fruits and nutmeg. Plush tannins, a distinctly robust structure and complexity make this an extraordinary example of this varietal. Its refined tannins and depth of flavor mark it out as one of our finest vintages. ..." March 2016

"A dark, powerful wine, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley Reserve shows the more virile side of the appellation. Black cherries, lavender, smoke, licorice and spices open up in the glass."  - Antonio Galloni, October 2015

Winemaker Laurie Hook has worked the Knights Valley vineyards for two decades, watching the vineyards evolve and noting which blocks and rows are particularly unique. Using fruit from those prized blocks, Laurie has crafted the Knights Valley Reserve Cabernet, which provides the purest and most layered expression of the unique terroir found in Knights Valley.

Great care was taken to retain the individual expressions of each of the vineyards in the blend by  keeping each lot separate throughout fermentation and aging. This has become tradition for Beringer Cabernets, and allows flexibility from a broad array of aromatic, flavor and structural components at blending time. After fermentation the lots were aged in 29 percent new French Never oak barrels for 20 months. Each lot was monitored closely and tasted regularly to ensure their development individually and to formulate how best to fit the lots together for the final blend.

The Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon opens with vivid aromas of fresh boysenberry and ripe, dark fruits which are accented by hints of leather and dark chocolate notes. The wine is full-bodied with a dense concentration of flavors and plush tannins that underpin the solid structure.
