Beringer Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
The Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is the purest expression of Napa Valley. This exceptional wine from winemaker Laurie Hook marks its thirty-fifth vintage and showcases rich concentration and lush fruit from select single-vineyard sites. It has complex layers of black fruit and notes of cocoa powder, graphite, and light smoky oak. Notes of bittersweet chocolate and blackberry pastry complement. In 1875 the Beringer brothers, Jacob and Frederick, came to Napa Valley from Germany with the goal of making wines that compared to the best in Europe. They established Beringer Vineyards in 1876 and began making world-class wines from this previously undiscovered region. Since then, Beringer has built a remarkable winemaking history and legacy crafting renowned wines from a prized collection of Napa Valley vineyards, celebrating the uniqueness of each site. As the longest continuously operating winery in Napa Valley, Beringer offers a trusted name and established record of quality.
