The St. Helena Home Vineyard is largely responsible for the establishment of Beringer Vineyards because this site, situated around the present-day winery, first attracted founder Jacob Beringer to the property in 1875. The vineyard is formed of a sloped alluvial fan of rock and gravelly soils with little capacity to hold water. Planted mostly to Cabernet Sauvignon, its fruit has been a key component of the Private Reserve Cabernet since 1982, and is a key component of Beringer 8th Maker Cabernet Sauvignon. St. Helena Home Vineyard Cabernet is characterized by classic Cabernet flavors of berries and black cherries layered with licorice and spice and a fleshy mid-palate. Careful attention is paid to vineyard blocks, which are kept separate and vinified with a goal of extracting maximum flavor.
“The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon St Helena Home Vineyard is characterized by plenty of red berries and cedar on the nose. Full-bodied, with gentle masses of soft, enveloping tannins, it's a plush, generous Cabernet Sauvignon but not that rich or concentrated.” - Joe Czerwinski, June 2022
“Spiced red and black fruits, dried flowers, loamy soil, and spicy oak all emerge from the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena Home Vineyard, a medium to full-bodied, round, supple 2019 that already has plenty of up-front appeal. It picks up some additional tannins with time in the glass, but you can safely drink this rock-solid St. Helena Cabernet over the coming 15+ years.” - Jeb Dunnuck, May 4, 2022
