Smooth and complex with 78% Cab Sauvignon contributing the firm tannic backbone that gives this such excellent structure. The other four Bordeaux varieties are here as well. The flavors are so interesting: black cherries... Smooth and complex with 78% Cab Sauvignon contributing the firm tannic backbone that gives this such excellent structure. The other four Bordeaux varieties are here as well. The flavors are so interesting: black cherries blackberry jam plum sauce coffee root beer and new oak. There's an acidic vibrancy as well. Just beautiful California claret. Drink now-2010. - S.H.

A blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot that finished at 14.4% alcohol, this highly desirable wine comes from Alexander Valley (two-thirds) and the rest from Sonoma Valley, Knight’s Valley and a small amount from Dry Creek in Russian River. The Bordeaux blend, which has been a consistent winner for the Beringer empire, is performing well in 2003. Notes of lavender, roasted herbs, licorice, sweet blackberries and Asian plums emerge from this intense, medium to full-bodied, lush red wine. The good news is that 12,600 cases were produced. This beauty is in its plateau of full maturity, where it should remain for another 5-7 years. - Robert Parker
