Winemaker Notes

The 2009 Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon presents aromas of ripe blackberry, sweet pastry and espresso, accented by hints of lavender, cedar and graphite. The palate is concentrated and dense with flavors of dark fruit and spice notes. A rich texture and mouth-coating tannins linger in the elegant finish.

Critical Acclaim

WW 94
Wilfred Wong of

Pretty amazing stuff, still young at this date, but just beginning to reveal its ultimate potential and star power. On the international stage, the 2009 Beringer Private Reserve Cabernet is a big time player. Loaded with plenty of bold black fruit, yet smart enough to keep it all in check. This wine has it all to go a long time in the cellar. Yet this one is friendly enough to serve now with the right meal like a quickly stir-fried skirt steak and a light toss of shallots. (Tasted: April 18, 2015, San Francisco, CA)

RP 93
The Wine Advocate

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve is a beautifully balanced wine. Firm yet well-integrated tannins frame a core of dark red berries, flowers, mint, spices and licorice. The Reserve shows lovely inner perfume and mid-palate juiciness. It should drink well with a minimum of cellaring. The main vineyards in the 2009 are Home (37%), Lampyridae (23%), Vogt (14%), Chabot (11%) and Rancho del Oso (9%). Each lot was aged separately for about two years before the final blend was assembled. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029.

V 92
Vinous / Antonio Galloni

Bright, saturated ruby-purple color. High-toned aromas of crushed boysenberry, blackbery liqueur, licorice pastille and violet. Densely packed, big and rich but not heavy, with penetrating acidity buffering the sweetness of the dark berry fruit. This rather powerful midweight finishes with lush, sweet tannins and excellent length. Quite structured, firm and fresh for a 2009 Cabernet. When I mentioned to Laurie Hook that this wine struck me as a bit high in volatile acidity, she responded that virtually all of these wines are between 0.65 and 0.75 ppm.

WS 91
Wine Spectator

An intense and rustic red, offering a rangy mix of dried berry, earth, leather, roasted herb and tobacco leaf flavors. A cool-year Cabernet that should benefit from cellaring, yet will always show its sturdy build. Best from 2014 through 2026.
