Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena St. Helena Home Vineyard 2001

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

($85) Bright ruby. Minerally aromas of cassis, licorice and flowers. Densely packed but bright, with impressively broad, mouthfilling flavors of dark berries and minerals. Shows an intriguing lead pencil flavor. Finishes with substantial ripe tannins... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2001 Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon St Helena Home Vineyard 750ml

Beringer Vineyards:
  It is impossible to take Beringer’s long history lightly. With their 215 acre plot of land purchased in 1875 and the winery founded in 1876, Jacob and Frederick Beringer’s winery is the oldest continually operating winery in Napa Valley.

  It is impossible to take Beringer’s long history lightly. With their 215 acre plot of land purchased in 1875 and the winery founded in 1876, Jacob and Frederick Beringer’s winery is the oldest continually operating winery in Napa Valley. In 2001, it was named a historic district in the National Register for Historic Places. Current winemaker Laurie Hook and winemaster Ed Sbragia continue to draw from over a dozen vineyards to create world-class wines from varying soil compositions and climates. The winery managed to survive, and even thrive, during Prohibition by selling sacramental wines with a federal license. Since the wine was being made for religious purposes, it was legal! A unique aspect of Beringer is the tunnel system that was carved into the side of Spring Mountain around 1880. Chinese immigrant workers, the same workers that helped build the Trans-Continental Railroad, spent years hand-chiseling the 1,200 feet of tunnels. To this day, the tunnels act as a natural insulator, keeping the temperature between 58 and 60 degrees year-round, ideal for storing wine. Read less
