Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley Reserve 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

94 points and 'Highly Recommended,' Wine Spectator: Offers rich, smooth, layered flavors of blackberry, wild berry, plum and cassis. Full-bodied, yet graceful and elegant, this is most interesting on the finish, where the flavors glide along and pick up a subtle lift of spice and mocha. Drink now through 2024. (4/30/12)

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

Aromas if blackberry and cassis with a hint of tobacco and licorice. Strong tannic core and medium finish.

Here's a rare wine for a vintner that's known for quality and quantity. Only 3,600 cases of this 2009 Knights Valley Reserve Cab were produced and the quality is outstanding. Select lots were carefully fermented, oak-aged and blended by Winemaker Laurie Hook who characterizes 2009 as a strong year where "tannins seemed to be more evolved and rounder". Wine Spectator scored this Cab 94 points saying "Offers rich, smooth, layered flavors of blackberry, wild berry, plum and cassis. Full-bodied, yet graceful and elegant, this is most interesting on the finish, where the flavors glide along and pick up a subtle lift of spice and mocha. Drink now through 2024." Very Limited!
