Beringer Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Chabot 2007

Member Review by jkieserca:

What a surprise! I have enjoyed Knight's Valley Cabs in the past but I had low expectations for one that was 22 years old. Right from the nose it was clear that the wine had survived well and was a classic Napa cab. The color had only a trace of mahogany. On the palate there was big fruit, subdued tanins and that pleasant finish that tells you the wine has great structure. Too bad it was my last one!

  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

Full ruby. Superripe aromas of black raspberry cedar and nutty oak show an almost roasted ripeness. Then sappy spicy and urgent with lively acidity and a minty element lifting the cassis and lead pencil flavors. Very bright wine finishing with solid tannic spine. This should age well.
