2009 Beringer Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve  (Napa Valley) 91

Tight, the wine requires serious coaxing before finding the earthy, spicy core of red and blacks. Bright and a bit dry in the finish, this needsat least 3-5 years to soften.

Truffle, earth, herbs and blackberry scents open to a sweet, lush, concentrated, round wine that ends with a long, juicy blast of sweet black cherries. This is a very nice wine that when compared to many of the more expensive cult wines is truly a stunning deal in today’s marketplace.

1992 Beringer Vineyards Merlot Bancroft Ranch  (Howell Mountain) 92

What a nice surprise to find this even better than alive and kicking at 21 years of age. With soft, sweet cherries, earth, and spice, the wine feels great with its supple, round textures. I would not hold this any longer. But if you find a bottle with good storage, as it sells for a song, it's well worth grabbing a bottle to try.

1991 Beringer Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve  (Napa Valley) 91

Earth, smoke, cassis and old cedar wood scents open to a soft, fully mature wine that ends with a spicy, red berry dominated finish. Although this was nice to taste, and the wine is not going to fade away quickly, it does not have the stuffing to improve.

1987 Beringer Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve  (Napa Valley) 90

Easy to drink, the wine is soft, full-bodied, and quickly provides a juicy sweet mouthful of ripe, dark red fruit. But there is not much complexity. It is basically one nice note. I like the note, but the wine seems to be fading. Drink up if you are sitting on any as it is only going to continue declining from here.

Quite the charmer, this is a solid example of delicious, fully mature, California Cabernet Sauvignon with loads of sweet, ripe, cherry fruit, with the right hint of cassis and a dollop of cranberry. There is freshness, soft tannins and roundness on the palate. Fully mature, this is not going to get better, but it's just great today. Pop and pour was all it needed.

1978 Beringer Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve  (Napa Valley) 75

This bottle had a perfect fill. The cork looked great and it came out in one piece. The wine showed a good color for its age. But it fell apart in the glass in perhaps 5 minutes. Those initial moments were fine, showing a medium-bodied, round, bright red cherry core of fruits. But a few minutes later, the wine rapidly began falling apart, quickly turning into a stewed, oxidized mess.
