This blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc is a gorgeous example of the Private Reserve. Of course, it probably suffers from the fact that Beringer is part of a gigantic international conglomerate, but this is just a stunning wine – inky purple, with plenty of cassis, a hint of espresso, subtle background oak and forest notes. The color is opaque and the wine full-bodied and opulent, with sweet tannin and a multilayered mouthfeel. It has silky tannins, good freshness and uplifting acid, which should ensure a considerable longevity of 15-20 additional years. This is a stunner. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Pure, vibrant but reticent aromas of dark berries, violet and espresso suggest a very concentrated wine with firm acidity. Dense and plush but also sharply delineated and youthfully imploded, conveying a strong impression of inner-mouth tension to its intense black fruit and mineral flavors. Finishes very long and tight, with pliant, fine-grained tannins and outstanding energy. A real live wire of a Cabernet and nowhere near peak drinkability: this wine has tightened up in recent years.
