This smells like totally typical, straight forward Napa Valley Cabernet. There are leafy edges that frame the cassis fruit and an underlay of toast and spice. With air the nose gains a nice perfume with almost lemongrass vegetal tones and hints of roast coffee beans and candied raspberries. On the palate this is nice and crisp feeling with integrated tannins that give the dark fruit a slightly hard feel. The finish is short and while the fruit is rich this seems like a wine that will never actually mature and the best we can hope for is that it fades away gradually. 88pts

Brimming with ripe, complex, youthful juicy plum, black cherry, chocolate, currant and spicy fruit flavors. Very dark color, excellent structure and depth of flavor. Finishes with a long, complex aftertaste. Should last another decade with ease... Wine Spectator.

Beringer's 1991 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve possesses excellent concentration, a smashing bouquet of smoky, unctuously-textured black and red fruits, sweet, generous, decadently rich flavors, low acidity, and a voluptuously long, juicy finish. This fabulous Cabernet should drink well for 15 or more years.

Winemaker's Notes:

For statisticians, 44% came from the Steinhauer Vineyard, 1% from Bancroft Ranch, 17% from Rancho del Oso, 3% from Chabot, 13% from St. Helena Home Ranch, 0% from Quarry Vineyard, and the balance from Marston Vineyard. Large-scaled yet elegant, it boasts classic notes of creme de cassis, chocolate, and smoky oak. With extraordinary voluptuousness, great concentration, tremendous intensity, and a finish that lasts nearly 60 seconds, this saturated purple-colored, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the greatest wines ever made at Beringer. It is a tribute to the brilliant Ed Sbragia.
