#46 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2013
This wine has rich aromas of dark cherry, anise, dark cocoa and toasted spices. Juicy flavor notes of black cherry, juicy plum, savory spices are highlighted by a concentrated mouthfeel and a rich, lengthy finish.
Strikingly rich and layered, this is beautifully balanced, elegant and graceful, offering a tremendous mix of blackberry, mocha, melted black licorice and currant, ending with firm, grainy tannins. The push of ripe fruit is long and persistent.
A fabulous wine for the appellation, Beringer’s 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Knights Valley boasts gorgeous integration of fruit, acidity and tannin. This is an especially silky, textured wine for Knights Valley. Blue and black fruit, grilled herbs, tobacco, sage and rosemary are all layered into this relatively succulent, round Cabernet Sauvignon. Sweet floral notes along with a hint of tar and violets add complexity on the finish. The 2010 is 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Cabernet Franc that spent 17 months in French oak barrels, 33% new. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.
A bright, sunny cabernet, this wine has elasticity in its tannins, seeming to snap the tobacco-scented dark berry fruit into place. Laurie Hook bases the reserve on vineyards on rockier soils, where the grapes gain greater concentration. This vintage lasts with a bold, earthy freshness, the tannins getting richer and more chocolate-edged as it takes on air (think Ancho chile mole). The dynamic flavors will add energy to a steak.
Gobs of jammy blackberry and cherry fruit mark this dynamic young wine, along with enticing notes of spice, mocha and toasty oak. The tannins are thick, but velvety, making it drinkable now. The Knights Valley appellation is a kind of high-elevation bridge between Sonoma County and Napa Valley; the wine shows true Mayacamas Mountain intensity.
