International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92Bright medium ruby. Ripe aromas of cassis, blackberry, violet, dark chocolate and wild herbs. Lush and rich, with an attractive restrained sweetness to the dark berry, black cherry and menthol flavors. The deepest and most concentrated of Beringer's vineyard-designated cabernets in 2011. Finishes chewy and sweet, with broad dusty tannins and a medicinal reserve.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: May/June 2014
