Beringer’s flagship wine, Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon truly reflects the best of each vintage and consistently highlights how extraordinary Napa Valley Cabernet is in its purest form. The Beringer reserve vineyards offer Cabernet of such quality that a minimalist approach to winemaking has long defined this blend. With each vintage, the best lots from our reserve vineyards in the Napa Valley are chosen, each of which demonstrate remarkable expression of terroir. Each vineyard is vinified separately and monitored carefully, from the moment the fruit comes into the winery at harvest. Beringer’s extraordinary collection of vineyards is the result of a significant and decades-long relationship between viticulture and winemaking. These sites remain the foundation of Private Reserve, even as the blend evolves based on vintage dynamics. After approximately a year and a half in hand-selected, custom-toasted new French Nevers oak, the final blend is crafted and aged in bottle for one year prior to release.

In an effort to provide our collectors with information on our wines, below you will find vintage notes, written at the time of release, component information and winemaker tasting notes. It has been extremely rewarding for the Beringer winemaking team to watch these wines age throughout the years.
