Beringer Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, 2005
Winemaster Ed Shragia weaves together a mosaic of single vineyards and ages the wine in new French Nevers oak barrels for twenty-one months to create Private Reserve, our finest Cabernet Sauvignon of the vintage. Each lot is vinified separately and aged in custom-toasted French Nevers oak barrels for nearly two years. The final harmonious blend showcases aromas and flavors of black fruits, vanilla, mint and dark chocolate with great structure, ripe tannins and a long finish. Private Reserve is a wine that can be enjoyed now or cellared for many years to come. Alc. 14.5% by vol.
