Beringer Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Founders' Es 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes The Cabernet Sauvignon, Founders' Estate, contains some petite sirah and was matured for over nine months in French and American oak. It has a light, inviting, very forward nose of blackberry, blueberry, raspberry, licorice, and chocolate. Flavors of blackberry and raspberry dominate with the addition of moderate tannins and finish medium-broad and medium-long.

  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

Great bargain, I will purchase more. It has a deep fruit flavor with mellow tannins and a vanilla taste with a smokey aftertaste. Nice finish. I paid $7.20 at Safeway. More, more, more

Founder's Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 - Beringer: Founder's Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 - Rotwein von Beringer VineyardsDen Founder's Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 kennzeichnet ein tiefes, dunkles Purpurrot. Er verströmt den Duft saftiger Aromen von Blaubeeren, Tabak, süßlicher Eiche und Würze zusammen mit der typisch pfeffrigen Note der Petite Syrah. Der vollmundige Geschmack mit saftiger Beerenfrucht, die warme Würze und ein Hauch nach frischer Minze prädestinieren diesen Wein für die Weihnachtszeit.  Der kleine Anteil Cabernet Franc verleiht dem Wein zusätzlich Struktur, die das sehr harmonisch integrierte Tannin stützt. Beim Nachhall lassen sich zarte Anklänge von süßen Kirschen und Schokolade herausschmecken. Probieren Sie diesen unverwechselbaren, typisch kalifornischen Cabernet zu kräftigem Pfeffersteak oder Wildgeflügel mit fruchtigen Saucen.Weingut: Beringer VineyardsLand: USARegion: KalifornienRebsorten: Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Syrah (Durif), Cabernet FrancInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,0 Vol.%Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 - 18°CLagerfähigkeit: 3 - 5 Jahre ab JahrgangFassreife: in Barriques gereift (12 Monate) Rotwein > USA > Kalifornien

Granatrote Farbe, Aromen von Holz, schwarzem Pfeffer und Lebkuchengwürz. Am Gaumen gut strukturiert, reich, Aromen von Heidelbeeren, mit einer leichten Tabaknot
