I have enjoyed many vintages of Beringer Reserve Cab and this is very typical of previous vintages. It is an elegant wine - somewhat more like a super-second bordeaux than a top-notch California cab. What always strikes me is the velvety mouth-feel and combination of red and dark berry flavors -- usually with a hint of vanilla. It needs more time in the bottle as it remains tightly wound as of 1/08.

We enjoyed this vintage Before a meal and were very happily surprised. It certainly has a multi-layered complexity with aromas of smokey oak, sage, and blackberry (of course-it's from Napa) and a lingering finish with hints of spicy currant and herbaceous minerality. Remember, the best place to enjoy a good paring is on a train-food just tastes better!

From Beringer's impressive line of reserve bottlings. Remarkable for its intensity, richness, depth and concentration, this is a big yet elegant wine stuffed with complex currant, leather, spice, sage and cedar flavors that fan out on the palate. Tempting now, but probably best cellared into 1999 to 2001.

( 115) Medium ruby. Welcoming aromas of black raspberry chocolate and sexy oak. Lush layered and sweet with superb energy and depth to the black raspberry and bitter chocolate flavors. The longest on the aftertaste of these 2004 cabernets finishing with very suave tannins and lovely aromatic persistence. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Rich dense and chewy with ripe plum blackberry fresh earth and mineral flavors framed by smoky cedary oak. Intense and persistent ending with a mix of cherry and currant fruit. The tannins are firm but ripe. Needs time. Best from 2009 through 2018. 8 200 cases made. JL Wine Spectator.

Rich and harmonious, offering a bright, supple core of cherry, currant, plum and spice flavors that turns smooth and silky before the fine tannins kick in. Tempting to drink now for all its fresh, young flavors, but has the depth and intensity to go through the decade. Try around 1996.

2004 Beringer Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon "Rich, dense and chewy, with ripe plum, blackberry, fresh earth and mineral flavors, framed by smoky, cedary oak. Intense and persistent, ending with a mix of cherry and currant fruit. The tannins are firm but ripe. Needs time. Best from 2009 through 2018." 93ptsJL"Medium ruby. Welcoming aromas of black raspberry, chocolate and sexy oak. Lush, layered and sweet, with superb energy and depth to the black raspberry and bitter chocolate flavors. The longest on the aftertaste of these 2004 cabernets, finishing with very suave tannins and lovely aromatic persistence." 94ptsST "A projected blend of the 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve indicates it may equal the 2002. A big, dense purple hue is followed by beautiful aromas of toasty oak, white chocolate, creme de cassis, and blackberries, sweet tannin, an opulent mouthfeel, and a long, rich, fleshy mid-palate as well as finish. It should be delicious young, yet age gracefully for 12-15+ years." 92-94ptsRP This is a California Red Wine.
