Beringer Vineyards

About Beringer Vineyards

California’s longest continuously operated winery, Beringer Vineyards is as iconic a New World producer as any. It was in fact in 1876 that Jacob and Frederick Beringer harvested their very first vintage in what would become the St Helena AVA, with the impressive Victorian mansion pictured above completed just seven years later. Whilst the vast majority of top Napa estates had to close their doors during the period of prohibition in the US, Beringer was able to sail on thanks to the license obtained to produce sacramental wine for churches across the nation.

Ownership of this legendary property has changed hands a number of times since the 1970s in particular, but appears to have finally settled in the capable hands of Treasury Wine Estates, owners of Stag’s Lead and Penfolds. In a very pleasing twist of fate, Mark Beringer was appointed head winemaker as the great-great grandson of Jacob!

Beringer Napa Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (95+)

Beringer’s 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve comes from the top selection from all their different holdings, with each vineyard aged separately for close to two years, then blended for quality. This blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc is a gorgeous example of the Private Reserve. Of course, it probably suffers from the fact that Beringer is part of a gigantic international conglomerate, but this is just a stunning wine – inky purple, with plenty of cassis, a hint of espresso, subtle background oak and forest notes. The color is opaque and the wine full-bodied and opulent, with sweet tannin and a multilayered mouthfeel. It has silky tannins, good freshness and uplifting acid, which should ensure a considerable longevity of 15-20 additional years. This is a stunner.
