Wine Advocate | Robert Parker | December 2010
"As for the single vineyard offerings, my favorites include the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Chabot Vineyard, which offers up notes of chocolate, scorched earth, black currants and berry."

Vintage
The 2007 growing season began with a moderately warm winter, which was followed by a very mild spring and summer. This prompted an even, steady ripening in the grapes out in the vineyards and nice development of acids, sugars and phenolics. The dryness of the season resulted in smaller berries and clusters, with a notable concentration of flavors.

Winemaking
With Cabernet of this quality, Lauries believe in taking a minimalist approach to winemaking. Vinifying the fruit from each vineyard separately, Laurie 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 she has long-established relationships.

Vineyards
Chabot Vineyard lies east of the Silverado Trail, just north of the road that leads up Howell Mountain to Bancroft Ranch and Steinhauer Ranch. The chunks of shiny obsidian heavily strewn through its soil reflect the locale, known as “Glass Mountain.” An underlying layer of pumice and bedrock ensures excellent drainage. The inky, highly structured, deeply flavored Cabernet from this vineyard was the first that Beringer Vineyards elected to bottle as a Private Reserve, in 1977, and we have continued to bottle a small amount each year since as a single-vineyard Cabernet.
