Marston Vineyard perches on the slopes of Spring Mountain to the west of St. Helena, just a few miles uphill from the site of the Beringer brothers’ original St. Helena Home vineyard. The restrictive soil, mostly stony loam, produces grapes with highly developed fruit flavors. Within the vineyard, the terrain rises to approximately 1200 feet, varying between steep, terraced slopes to gently rolling land. Careful attention is paid to vineyard blocks, which are kept separate and vinified with a goal of extracting maximum flavor.
“This has a fragrant nose of blueberries, pine needles, violets, cloves and black olives. Iodine notes, too. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, fine-grained tannins. Beautiful freshness and energy, leading to a precise finish.” - James Suckling, January 2021
“Coming from Spring Mountain and 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2018 Marston Vineyard reveals a dense purple hue as well as a meaty, powerful bouquet of plum and currant fruits, bouquet garni, smoked herbs, and chocolate. This is a rich, nicely concentrated, structured mountain Cabernet with medium to full body, a layered, textured mouthfeel, and ripe yet certainly present tannins. It’s going to benefit from a handful of years in the cellar and should evolve gracefully for 15+.” - Jeb Dunnuck, January 28, 2021
“The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Marston Vineyard is sensual, delicate and nuanced. Red berry fruit, bright acids and blood orange open in the glass, all framed by silky Spring Mountain tannins that give the wine its super-finessed personality.” - Antonio Galloni, March 2021
Mark Beringer, great-great-grandson of Beringer Vineyards' founding brother Jacob Beringer, was immersed in wine from the moment he was born in the heart of the Napa Valley. As the direct descendant to Beringer's first winemaker and one of the most iconic family names in Napa Valley wine history, he knew from a young age that he would follow in the footsteps of his ancestors. As a young man he spent many hours working in his family's wine store in Saint Helena, expanding his knowledge of wine as well as gaining an appreciation for wines outside of the famous region he has always called home.
