    The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve is built from completely different sources. Sixty-six percent came from the St. Helena Home Ranch, 18% from the Chabot Vineyard, and the rest from Beringer's estates in St. Helena, Rutherford and Coombsville. It is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that came in at 14.6% natural alcohol with a pH of 3.8. Perhaps the greatest Beringer Private Reserve since the 2007, 2005, 2002 and 2001, the 2010 offers up notes of lead pencil shavings, creme de cassis, subtle smoke, wet rocks and background oak. Full-bodied, rich and impressive, it can be drunk now or cellared for two decades.

    A dense, rich and powerful expression of Cabernet, with loads of dark berry, loamy earth and crushed rock flavors that show pockets of black licorice, road tar and dried flowers, ending with rich, chewy tannins that give the lingering flavors traction. Should be long-lived.

    Good bright medium ruby. Blackberry, bitter chocolate and licorice aromas and flavors are complemented by sexy new oak. Lush, deep and densely packed, with a retrained sweetness that's not yet showing in a few of Beringer's 2010 vineyard-designated cabernets. But this tactile, chewy wine finishes with plenty of tannic clout for aging. This is every bit as backward today as the Chabot.
