  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

    ($90) Good red-ruby. Very ripe aromas of roasted currant, smoked meat and chocolate show a slightly porty quality. Very fat and thick but a bit youthfully disjointed today, with the wine's strong acid/tannin spine sticking out. The wild berry and cedar flavors seem a tad dry. Tough going right now.

    From Howell Mountain, the outstanding 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Rancho del Oso reveals more mineral and wet rock characteristics. It is one of the top single vineyard offerings in this vintage.

    Very ripe fruit on the nose, slightly raisiny. Full bodied, with lots of dried fruits, spices, and chocolate on the palate. Nice ripe tannins, but a little dry at the end. But should soften with age. Pull the cork after 2013. 14+22+23+32. Find the wine

  • 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.
