With each vintage of the acclaimed Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, the Beringer Winemaker chooses the best lots from our reserve vineyards in the Napa Valley, each of which demonstrate remarkable expression of terroir. Beringer’s extraordinary collection of vineyards is the result of a significant and decades-long relationship between viticulture and winemaking.
“ Beringer's 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve is greater than the sum of (most of) its parts. Lovely floral and cassis shadings combine with the merest whisper of green herbs, just enough to keep things interesting and varietally distinct. It's medium to full-bodied and strongly tannic, so it needs time in the cellar, maybe even more so than the individual components.” - Joe Czerwinski, June 2022
“The flagship 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve comes from a mix of the single vineyards and is raised in 90% new French oak. Proof that sometimes the sum is greater than the individual components, this beautifully balanced, seamless Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon offers classic cassis and dark fruits as well as tobacco leaf, lead pencil, charcoal, and licorice. An incredibly compelling, full-bodied beauty, it has plenty of ripe, mouthcoating tannins, a great mid-palate, and terrific purity of fruit. It can be drunk anytime over the coming 20-25 years.” - Jeb Dunnuck, May 2022
“Blackberries, blackcurrants and black cherries with some flowers. Full-bodied, yet tight with ripe tannins and polish and intensity. Long and linear with richness. Fresh acidity. Shows tension, too. Subtle mint and stone at the end. Really fresh and racy. Best after 2025, but attractive now.” - James Suckling, January 2022
