“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.” - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Wine Spectator 93 Points

"Distinctive for the loamy earth, cedary oak and lead pencil frame around rich dark berry and licorice notes that are sharply focused, deep and persistent, with tannins that echo the core flavor themes, providing grip and traction. Drink now through 2030. 491 cases made." - James Laube, Wine Spectator

Vintage Notes

The relaxed, high-quality 2012 harvest was a winemaker’s dream. The ideal growing season—well-timed rains, no frost during bud break, and perfect weather for bloom, berry-set and ripening—was textbook Napa Valley. Long stretches of sunny days coupled with foggy nights gave our 2012 wines exceptionally rich, expressive avors and impeccable balance. We had no weather pressures—from either pending rains or excessive heat—to rush the harvest. Instead, we had the luxury of waiting until the grapes reached absolute perfect maturity.
