Sweet and a bit wild, showing terrific retention of candied raspberry and plum fruit. This concentrated wine is a step up in texture and depth of fruit from the earlier vintages. Strong but integrated acidity gives it definition and lift, with the long finish showing broad, tongue-dusting tannins.

Beringer's 1985 Private Reserve is a superb fully mature (atypical for the vintage) medium to full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with an enticing chocolatey herb blackcurrant-scented nose rich plump expansive sweet jammy flavors attractive spice and a soft lush finish. It has matured quickly for a 1985 but there is no rush to consume it as it reveals no signs of fatigue. It should hold at its current plateau for 5-10 years.</P>
