Beringer Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Port 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

Rich, fruity, and complex, this port reminds Winemaster Ed Sbragia of "sweet strawberry and cherry pie, with brown spices and toffee." This is a promising long aging potential!

Beringer Vineyards:
  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

Enjoyed this on 17th of July, 2011. Been in my cellar since 2004, so 7 years. A nice surprise, cellaring had done wonders to this affordable (EUR 10,-) and "basic" Napa Vally cabernet sauvignon. Still fruity with blueberry, blackcurrant, and some plum. The finish is long, smooth and well balanced with gentle oak. Went very well with the roasted duck breast we had with a great teriyaki sauce. I will surprise some of my expert friends with this one next time we have a CS tasting :)
