  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

    Deep red-ruby color. Seductive aromas of black raspberry, minerals, violet and brown spices, plus sweet, smoky oak scents. Sweet and silky in the mouth; offers impressive concentration and intensity of flavor without excessive weight. This has the firm acid spine of the vintage, but is impeccably balanced from the outset. Finishes firmly tannic, youthful and very long. A very impressive '95.

    The accessible 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon Chabot Vineyard reveals medium to full body, and a knock-out nose of roasted herbs, grilled meats, coffee, cassis, and cherry fruit. In the mouth, it is viscous and full-bodied, with a chewy mid-section, and a spicy, long, rich finish. It will last for 2 decades. Undoubtedly the Chabot Vineyard is Beringer's best known single vineyard Cabernet. Like the other single vineyard offerings, this is a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 100% new oak casks. The single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons are part of what Beringer calls their |Vineyard Collection.| Produced in 200 case lots, readers expecting to find them sitting on a shelf in their local retail shops will be disappointed, as they are destined to be sold via Beringer's mailing list, or directly from the winery. Because of the limited quantities available, my notes on these wines are intentionally abbreviated.

    Cherry and coffee on the nose. This wine is medium bodied with a soft mouthfeel. After 1 hour of air it offers a balance of coffee, casis and dark cherry fruit. Drink now.

Beringer Vineyards is the oldest continuously operating winery in the Napa Valley. In 2001, the estate was placed on the National Register for Historic Places as a Historic District. Jacob Beringer's foresight in recognizing the quality and potential of grape growing in the Napa Valley is part of the living heritage of Beringer Vineyards . With the present use of state-of-the-art technology applied to age-old traditions, Beringer Vineyards' wines continue to reflect a single-minded dedication to the making of memorable wines from great Napa Valley vineyards.

California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
