Vintage 2013
Wine Type Red
Varietal Cabernet Sauvignon
Region Napa Valley
Winemaker Mark Beringer

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 entirely to Cabernet Sauvignon, its fruit has been a key component of the Private Reserve Cabernet since 1982. 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. The 2013 St. Helena was harvested between October 1st and 14th and was aged for 20 months in 90% new French oak barrels.

236 cases produced.

93 points - Wine Advocate

"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena Home Vineyard is more focused on blueberry and blackberry licorice and floral notes. They all can be approached early on (3-4 years), but will age for 25+ years."  -  Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, October 2013.

Vintage Notes

The 2013 vintage began with a warm, dry spring and relatively early bud break. Summer was notably consistent with even, warm temperatures throughout. Harvest began quite early in August, and by September the majority of whites and lighter reds were completely off the vines. Cool yet sunny weather in October allowed the final grapes on the vine to linger and develop great phenolic and flavor maturities while maintaining steady sugar levels. Overall, it was a high quality crop that was above average in quantity.
