Beringer Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain Steinhauer Ranch 1999
"Once in a great while, Mother Nature allows you to create aseamless wine, one in which the fruit, the tannins and the oak are in perfect balance. None of these three aspects - the holy trinity of red winemaking - dominates. Instead, they work together to elevate the wine beyond expectations. This 1999 PR Cabernet is mouthfilling and full of ripe fruit, assertive and yet soft as velvet." Ed Sbragia, Winemaster Reviews Wine Spectator Rated 93 - Spectator Selections - Collectibles "Complex aromas of currant, herb, tobacco, olive and cedar lead to similar flavors in a rich concentrated yet elegant presentation. Turns smooth and creamy, with vanilla, mocha and blackberry flavors peeking through on the finish." (Jim Laube) June 15, 2003 Wine Enthusiast Rated 91 "In what has become the classic PR , this wine is showing well young, with flamboyant aromas of toasty oak backed by concentrated, pure flavors of black currants. It's rich and smooth enough to drink now, yet powerful and intense enough to age." August 2003 International Wine Cellar Rated 92-95 "...Enticing flavors of currants, minerals and brown spice. Very long, slow-building finish features big but sweet and fine tannins. Suave and impressive." May/June 2002
External Reviews for Beringer Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain Steinhauer Ranch
Round, with good depth to currant, dried raspberry and fresh herb flavors that firm up on the tannic finish. Good Cab for the money. Drink now through 2005.
The smoky, toasty, figgy, buttery aromas of this enticing white lead to similar rich flavors running deep and persistent, picking up notes of pear, apricot, citrus and melon. Finish zooms on and on. Drink now through 2004. 20,000 cases made. (JL) Wine Spectator. A Chardonnay wine from California in USA. 1999 Beringer Chardonnay Private Reserve 750ml
An explosion of berry and currant flavors laced with hints of spice and soft tannins.
The deep ruby color of this wine is the first hint of layers of currant, blueberry, clove and tobacco that unfold in the mouth. Barrel aging enhances a supporting structure that makes this wine a perfect dinner match with thyme-encrusted roasted pork chops or hamburgers in bleu-cheese and mushrooms.
