"Eighth Maker is a celebration of my family’s heritage brought full circle, the name a nod to my stepping in as Beringer’seighth winemaker 139 years after my great-great-grandfather Jacob and his brother Frederick founded this winery. This wine is produced from the Beringer estate’s most prestigious vineyards and is a culmination of over a century of crafting iconic Napa wines. Lush, balanced, and with excellent potential for aging, Eighth Maker is both an achievement and a homecoming."
“A dark and seductive cabernet, this has stunning forest berries and enormous concentration and freshness. But, as delicious as it is now, this is also built for the long term. Great finish, where the interplay of fruit and fine tannins is complex. Goes on for minutes with dark berries, blackberries and hot stones. A core of greatness. A new wine to give a nod to the eighth winemaker of Beringer, Mark Beringer.” - James Suckling
