Beringer Quantum 2014

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Fine tobacco, nut, tomato leaf and sweet slightly jammy red fruits offer lovely complexity on the nose, with really fine grape spice and integrated wood spice aromas. This is big and broad in the mouth, with soft slightly chewy tannins early followed by late-arriving tannins that are a bit harder. A touch inky on the front, broad and slightly matte on the mid-palate, this picks up steam on the back end with rich blackcurrant and candied blackberry fruit flecked with bright black spice and soft herb-inflected flavors that drop off onto a slightly wood-sweetened finish with plenty of coffee and mocha tones. Powerful but relatively well balanced, this is a rather muscular and spicy wine for Beringer which today, while the quality is evident, comes off a bit clumsy. 89 points

  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

The Cabernet Sauvignon-based 2010 Red Blend Quantum here in its first vintage flows across the palate with attractive layers of deep resonant fruit. Dark raspberry jam orange rind cloves violets and cinnamon are all woven together gracefully. This open approachable Bordeaux-style blend should drink well pretty much right out of the gate. Quantum is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon 10% Merlot 5% Cabernet Franc 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Petite Sirah. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. -Antonio Galloni Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
