When I was in northern California the week before Thanksgiving the rumors that were swirling about the impending sale of Beringer by its international corporate owner Nestle to an investment consortium proved true when the sale was announced. Let s hope the new owners maintain the status quo as Beringer has had an exceptional run of highly successful wines since the mid-eighties. Considering the diversity of wines produced I would be hard pressed to single out another winery that has enjoyed as much success as Beringer has over the last decade. With the exception of a chunky overly-oaked Pinot Noir it is impossible to find anything less than top-flight at Beringer with many of the firm s wines undeniably special. With respect to Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon Beringer could teach a few things to some of its neighbors as these varietals soar to the heights of quality at this winery. Beringer s most glorious red wines are their three estate wines the Bancroft Vineyard Merlot the Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon and their limited production (800-1000 cases) blockbuster Chabot Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. Beringer s 25-acre Chabot Vineyard produces some of the most extraordinary Cabernet Sauvignon from California. The 1993 Chabot Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is very good.

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.
