Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon Founders Estate 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The Cabernet Sauvignon, Founders' Estate, contains some petite sirah and was matured for over nine months in French and American oak. It has a light, inviting, very forward nose of blackberry, blueberry, raspberry, licorice, and chocolate. Flavors of blackberry and raspberry dominate with the addition of moderate tannins and finish medium-broad and medium-long.

My Rating 84: This wine is extremely neutral with no hint of complexity. It is not a jug wine the taste is well balanced and nothing overwhelms. The French might love this. I don't.

My rating: 85. This wine has a balanced body, not to fruity. It lacks complexity but nothing wrong with the taste. Nose is well balanced and not very powerful. Price was good: 7 $

Deep color with bright cassis, green tea, black olive and sweet vanilla spice aromas that lead into a fleshy mouth. Black fruit, cassis, and spice flavors are supported into a long finish by fine-grained, assertive tannins.

Another good drink from this line, this Cab displays ripe, juicy flavors of black currants and cherries that are accented with smoky vanilla and toast. It's smooth and supple in the mouth. A good value in this price range.

The Beringer Founders' Estate Cabernet Sauvignon bursts with lush black fruit and intense cassis flavors that compliment the baking spice and vanilla aromas. Structured tannins and a long finish make this unmistakably a California Cabernet that can be enjoyed immediately. Pair this wine with anything from an elegant duck dish to hearty barbeque pork ribs - delicious. - Winery

A full bodied wine with deep berry, toasted oak, and vanilla spice flavors.

Pour this into a decanter and it will go from being a thick, black-cherry red to a plush, generous, cherry-scented cabernet, a simple pleasure with a steak.

Soft, rounded flavors and rich fruit character are enhanced by oak undertones from aging in small French and American barrels. Accessible tannins provide structure to the vivid berry profile.

Riper blackberry flavors are side by side with less ripe, greener notes in this dry, good wine of average character. It has pretty tannins, soft acidity, and velvety mouthfeel of a great wine, minus the concentration. The difference is vine yield, but this is a good wine for the price.
