  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

    ($90) Bright ruby-red. Blackcurrant, black cherry, violet, mint and leather on the nose. Thicker on entry than the Quarry, then juicy and high-pitched in the middle, with floral and minty nuances contributing to an impression of energy. Not a fleshy wine but nicely concentrated and light on its feet. Finishes with serious, dusty tannins that call for a few years of patience.

    The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Marston Vineyard from Spring Mountain also exhibits abundant tannin along with a chalky note, and slight austerity and rusticity.

  • 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.
