Vintage 2017
Varietal Cabernet Sauvignon
Region Napa Valley
Winemaker Mark Beringer
A special addition to Beringer Bros. collection, this wine celebrates Bertha Beringer, Beringer’s very own Whisper Sister, whose ingenuity helped the property survive Prohibition. Today, at over 140 years old, Beringer holds the distinction of being the longest-operating winery in Napa –an achievement that we owe to Bertha.

Tasting Notes

A deep violet color sets the stage for classic Cabernet Sauvignon aromas of plum preserves, black cherry and crème de cassis. Rich and full bodied, the palate shows distinct notes of blackberry, blueberry jam and cocoa accented by oak spice and vanilla.

Winemaking Notes

This Cabernet Sauvignon is picked at the peak of flavor development from top sites across Napa and Sonoma. Fermentation occurs in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks with frequent pump-overs to maximize color and flavor extraction. The wine is then aged for 20 months in French oak barrels, 20% new, for a warm, vanilla complexity. A splash of Petite Sirah, a classic Napa variety during the Prohibition era, is blended in for authenticity and an infusion of body and spice.
