2015 BERINGER PRIVATE RESERVE CABERNET SAUVIGNON
As much as I love tasting and discovering new and up-and-coming producers, there’s nothing like the feeling of historic significance, pride and antiquity that I get from tasting a wine that helped pave the way for Napa to become one of the greatest wine regions of the world. Beringer’s flagship Private Reserve Cabernet hasn’t skipped a beat either, among Napa Valley Cult Wines and their 2015 ranked as the #24 Wine-Of-The-Year on James Sucklings Top 100 in 2018 with an outstanding 99 Point score. Here’s a chance to own it, and at a fantastic price.
99 POINTS – JAMES SUCKLING
James Sucking Notes, “The spice and walnut aromas are so enticing. Undertones of blackberries and black truffles. Full-bodied, dense and layered with fantastic tension and seamless tannins. It goes on for minutes. All about classic structure and beauty.” – James Suckling “Top 100 Wines of 2018”, JAMES SUCKLING 99 POINTS
95+ POINTS – WINE ADVOCATE
Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate Notes, “Containing the tiniest splashes of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve has a deep garnet-purple color and nose of plum preserves, baked blackberries and cassis with hints of menthol, sandalwood and chocolate box. Full-bodied with soft, seductive tannins and a lively backbone supporting the generous, ripe, opulent fruit, it has a decadent spiciness and great length.” – Lisa Perotti-Brown, WINE ADVOCATE 95+ POINTS
97 POINTS – JEB DUNNUCK
Jeb Dunnuck Notes, “…This full-bodied, ripe, voluptuous beauty shows the vintage to a T, offering a blast of sweet blackcurrants, licorice, ground herbs, and graphite aromas and flavors. Blockbuster styled, with full body and an expansive, sexy texture, it has the depth and density to continue drinking brilliantly for 20+ years.” JEB DUNNUCK ADVOCATE 97 POINTS
