Description

Description

Vogt vineyard is located on Howell Mountain. The 15-acre vineyard has volcanic-based soils that are restrictive and thus foster grapes of great intensity and structure. Vogt vineyard first appeared in the Private Reserve blend at the 2009 vintage. Vogt Cabernet shows a luscious fruit core from the outset, accentuated by ripe tannins. The 2015 Vogt was aged for 20 months in 92% new French oak barrels. Careful attention is paid to vineyard blocks, which are kept separate and vinified with a goal of extracting maximum flavor.

"Aromas of walnut shell and dark earth and black fruits. Blueberries, too. Full-bodied, round and juicy. Love the richness and brightness of this wine. Dense and poised. Tight and reserved. Needs two or three years to open." - James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, May 2018

Wine Spectator

“Tannins emerge as the dominant theme here, but time should reward the flavors of gravelly dark berry, cedar, pencil shavings and tar. Best from 2021 through 2031.”-James Laube, Wine Spectator

Wine Advocate

“Deep garnet-purple colored, with an intensely spicy nose with notes of cinnamon, anise, fenugreek and pepper over a core of warm black and red currants with wafts of sandalwood. Medium to full bodied, the palate is built like a brick house with firm, chewy tannins and great freshness cutting through the liquid spice flavors, finishing long.” - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

Tasting Note

Vogt Cabernet shows a luscious fruit core from the outset, accentuated by ripe tannins.

Vintage

The 2015 growing season was marked by pleasant weather with little pressure from heat spikes or unseasonable rain. A dry winter, common in recent years, was quickly followed by an equally dry spring, leading to an early bud break and fast start to the growing season. Warm weather continued throughout late spring and summer, allowing for the steady and sure development of flavors. The overall quality, complexity and balance in the vines produced exceptional fruit for winemakers. The impact of the continuing drought was evident in slightly lighter crop loads, but the reduction in size was offset by an increase in quality.

Mark Beringer - Winemaker

Mark Beringer, great-great-grandson of Beringer Vineyards' founding brother Jacob Beringer, was immersed in wine from the moment he was born in the heart of the Napa Valley. As the direct descendant to Beringer's first winemaker and one of the most iconic family names in Napa Valley wine history, he knew from a young age that he would follow in the footsteps of his ancestors. As a young man he spent many hours working in his family's wine store in Saint Helena, expanding his knowledge of wine as well as gaining an appreciation for wines outside of the famous region he has always called home.
