  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

Very pleasant cab as it it introduced to the palate. Maybe a tad more fruity than a lot of California Cabernets. Flavors include blackbery or maybe black cherry. Very sedate tannins would make this wine attractive to a lot of people. US$16.99 at Costco a year ago.

Very nice, smooth cabernet, worth a re-buy (if I have to)

Notes of blackberry, dried herbs, and star anise balanced with distinct, rich tannins.

A good, rich Cabernet for drinking now and over the short term. Itrsquo;s dry and full-bodied, and if itrsquo;s a little heavy, the blackberry, currant, butter and cedar flavors are delicious.

A lot of Cabernet at this price, combining ripe, plump flavors of plum, black cherry and blackberry in a rich, smooth, polished style. Full-bodied and firming nicely on the finish, where the tannins have a minerally edge. Drink now through 2021.

Dark cherry meets oak tannins in this firm, juicy red. Therersquo;s youthful tension in the tannins, robust and a bit coarser in this vintage than is typical for this wine. Itrsquo;s generous, simple and warm, a steakhouse pour.

This winersquo;s juicy, sour cherry flavors are plumped up and enriched by the chocolatey tannins of new oak. Itrsquo;s a full-bodied red thatrsquo;s clean and sweet.

Aromas of cherry, anise and cocoa are followed by abundant flavors of dark cherry and a hint of spice. The soft, mouth-coating tannins are highlighted by the blend's juicy fruit core. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **

Firm, intense and concentrated, with spicy, loamy earth, dried berry, sage and herbal scents. Full-bodied, ending with chewy tannins and a dash of black licorice. Drink now through 2015.
