"The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Steinhauer Ranch was very good..."

The 2008 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is evocative of the rich terroir of Napa Valley, yet a wine that I find to be immediately approachable and appealing. Forward berry aromas are complemented by toasty oak and spice components. On the palate, flavors of baked berries are highlighted by a round, fleshy mouthfeel and a slightly savory note in the finish.

"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." - Antonio Galloni

"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."
 
The 2009 Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon presents aromas of ripe blackberry, sweet pastry and espresso, accented by hints of lavender, cedar and graphite. The palate is concentrated and dense with flavors of dark fruit and spice notes. A rich texture and mouth-coating tannins linger in the elegant finish.

"Dark, sumptuous and racy, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Chabot Vineyard is all about texture. This is one of the more voluptuous wines in the Beringer range. As such, it will drink nicely right out of the gate. The radiant, expressive finish is striking in its immediacy, but there is plenty of finesse and nuance here as well."

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.

Chabot Cabernet has finely knit tannins, and layers of black currant with hints of mint and cedar. The 2012 Chabot was harvested between October 12th and 20th and was aged for 18 months in 90% new French oak barrels.

"The magnificent 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Lampyridae Vineyard comes from Mt. Veeder, one of my favorite sources when the Cabernet achieves full ripeness. Blueberry, black raspberry, floral, licorice, lavender and a hint of blood aromas jump from the glass of this dense, full-bodied, voluptuously textured wine. This super-impressive 2012 should drink well for 15-20 years. For its size and prominence, the St. Helena flagship Beringer winery does a remarkable job with the quality of its offerings."
Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

Lampyridae, “firefly” in Latin, is Napa’s highest vineyard at approximately 2400 ft elevation. This picturesque vineyard is high above the fog layer and has longer hours of sunshine and warmer nights, but days are cooler than the lower elevation vineyards. On clear days you can see all the way to San Francisco. One of the newest vineyards in the Private Reserve line-up, it shows incredible depth of flavor and intense, unique black fruit characters. The 2012 Lampyridae was aged for 18 months in 95% new French oak barrels.

Marston Vineyard perches on the slopes of Spring Mountain to the west of St. Helena, just a few miles uphill from the site of the Beringer brothers’ original St. Helena Home vineyard. The restrictive soil, mostly stony loam, produces grapes with highly developed fruit flavors. Within the vineyard, the terrain rises to approximately 1200 feet, varying between steep, terraced slopes to gently rolling land. The 2012 Marston was harvested on October 20th and was aged for 18 months in 80% new French oak barrels.
