2013 Beringer Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2013 Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is an exceptional expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from one of the best vintages in years. The enticing aromas of ripe blackberry, boysenberry, fresh tobacco, brown spice and sweet mint are profound in the glass. Dense and well-structured, its supple tannins are complemented by notes of espresso, mocha and balanced with a silky and elegant finish.

2014 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

The Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon opens with vivid aromas of fresh boysenberry and ripe, dark fruits which are accented by hints of leather and dark chocolate notes. The wine is full-bodied with a dense concentration of flavors and plush tannins that underpin the solid structure.

2013 Beringer Knights Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Knights Valley Reserve is a barrel selection, a blend of the best vineyard lots in a given vintage. To maintain the unique characteristics of the different lots from varying areas of the vineyard they are kept separate through vinification and aging, and only the most expressive are selected for this Reserve bottling. Extended maceration created larger tannins to enhance the lush mouthfeel of the blend and extracted a maximum of color, aromas and flavors. The wines were aged in small French Nevers oak barrels (53% percent new) for eighteen months, enhancing the rich mouthfeel and structure. A small portion of Cabernet Franc was also added to add further complexities to this memorable wine.
