SKU: 44491-1997
  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    Bright ruby-red. Roasted currant, nutty oak and a hint of menthol on the highly aromatic nose. Lush, suave and sweet; not a huge wine but penetrating and deep, with flavors of currant and dark chocolate. Finishes with sweet tannins and subtle persistence. Approachable already due to its supple texture, but balanced to age.

    The provocative 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Chabot Vineyard is a dense wine with loamy soil scents intermixed with chocolate, licorice, creosote, and copious blackberry and cassis fruit. Full-bodied and chewy, with superb concentration, symmetry, and purity, as well as moderate tannin in the finish, it will be at its finest between 2004-2022.

  • 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.
