Vintage 2017
Varietal Red Blend
Winemaker Mark Beringer
Beringer’s latest offering pays tribute to the winery’s very beginning. 150 years ago, brothers Jacob and Frederick Beringer left Germany to found a winery and distillery in Napa. Reusing their spirit barrels to age wine just seemed like good financial sense, but they quickly discovered it added a whole new level of richness and complexity to their wine.

Tasting Notes

This wine is bursting with ripe strawberry, caramel and vanilla with Rye Whiskey character coming through on notes of coriander, caraway, lavender, and bergamot. Full bodied with silky tannins
and a rich, lingering finish.

52% Pinot Noir, 11% Zinfandel, 10% Touriga Nacional, 9% Petite Sirah, 6% Syrah, 4% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot, 4% other

Winemaking Notes

Beringer Bros. Rye Red Blend is picked at the peak of flavor development from top sites across California and fermented in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks. 20% of the wine aged 60 days in second-pass charred American oak barriques which previously held Rye Whiskey.
