Wine Spectator | Rating: 90A sturdy wine, rich, earthy, with chewy mineral, currant and black cherry fruit that's well-centered, turning plush even, with a dash of mint woven into the tobacco-laced tannins.Author: James Laube
International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89Deep red-ruby. Plum, currant, raspberry, minerals and mint on the nose. Ripe, sweet and supple, with lovely texture and ripe acidity but only moderate nuance. Finishes with rather fine, sweet tannins and very good length. Lacks the flavor development for outstanding, but still highly successful for the vintage.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: May/June 2001
Wine Advocate | Rating: 90One of Beringer's outstanding single vineyard Cabernets is the 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon Chabot Vineyard. It is produced from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aromas of coffee, licorice, plums, blackberries, and currants emerge from the moderately intense bouquet. This opaque ruby-colored, dense, medium-bodied 1998 offers attractive fruit extract as well as concentration.Author: Robert Parker
