Beringer Knight's Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley United States 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

Wow! A fabulous 90pt wine etched and hand painted with a personal message - only at Cellar360. This inky purple wine brought a smile to the face of tasters who raved about its sweet tobacco and woodsy aromas, combined with mixed berries and cherry blossoms. Flavors of blackberries and cherries were peppered with cedar and eucalyptus, and lingered on the slightly tannic, vanilla-cherry finish. Atlanta Wine Report, September/ October 2004 While supplies last, this luscious Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon can be ordered etched with a heart-felt message. Sorry - of Valentine's Message - Available in "Enjoy" and "Thank you" only.

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

I have tried both the 2001 & 2002 of this wine. Wonderful, smooth oak with a long finish....fruit heavy cabernet. Yummy, classic cab.
