Tasting Note

Aromas of allspice and cardamom, accented with cherry cordial liqueur, give way to flavors of dark fruits such as blackberry, blackcurrant, and rich sugar plums. Notes of fire roasted chestnuts and warmly baked cinnamon lead to velvety plush tannins with a lingering, lasting finish worthy of the finest celebrations.

Vintage

The 2016 California wine-grape harvest was early, with a mostly normal yield of exceptional quality fruit. A relatively even growing season followed welcome winter rains that helped to alleviate the drought. Temperatures cooled down mid-September, providing a welcome week-long break between the harvest of white and red fruit. Overall, yields were down from the long-term average, while wine quality was exemplary. The grapes for this wine were harvest from September 22nd to October 15th.

Winemaking

With the focus on celebrating Napa Valley, each distinctive lot is kept separate from the moment of harvest until final blending. This special release wine features a foundation of Cabernet Sauvignon, the backbone and undisputed star for Beringer. Joining Cabernet from outstanding vineyards is Howell Mountain Merlot, contributing to a round mouthfeel and soft tannins for immediate enjoyment. The wine was aged in 100% new French oak for 21 months.

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.
