Beringer Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
Blend: 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot, 1% Merlot
A clasically proportioned, black currant-secnted Napa Valley cabernet, this wine is equally rich in its small berried fruit and its tannins. Dark in tone, broad in texture, compelling in the freshness of its fruit, this drinks well now and will age with grace.
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is richer, deeper and riper than the Knights Valley bottling. Chocolate, mocha, plums and spices come to life in this fleshy, mid-weight wine. Readers who appreciate a more mineral-inflected style of Cabernet will prefer the Knights Valley bottling, while those who appreciate radiant, fruit-forward Cabernets are likely to prefer the Napa Valley. Both are beautiful. The blend is 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% each Petit Verdot and Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020.
