Beringer Founder's Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

After vinification, the wines were aged in French and American oak barrels for 12 months. The resulting wine has a deep color with bright cassis, green tea, black olive and sweet vanilla spice aromas that lead into a fleshy mouth that has a big Cab flavor. Black fruit, cassis, and spice flavors are supported into a long finish by fine-grained, assertive tannins.

  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

I second the motion, I paid $7.70 at Safeway only to find the next day it was being sold at Wal Mart for $5.57 per bottle. Incredible wine, unbelievable pricing. I would love to add a tasting note to liserwines below comments for this wine, the tannins have a nice subtle bite and the smokey aftertaste is wonderful. Lefty - The Great Pacific Northwest

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
