2013 Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve @ £475 IB per case of six bottles
One of the great efforts of recent years, and not
surprisingly so, is the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve, a blend of 81%
from Howell Mountain, 11% from St. Helena and the rest Calistoga and Mount
Veeder. It is a blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit
Verdot aged 20 months in 84% new French oak. At 15.2% natural alcohol, this is
a big boy, but also classic Napa Cabernet Sauvignon with crème de cassis,
graphite, licorice, and a touch of spicy oak. Winemaker Laurie Hook, who has
since departed as winemaker, really hit a home run with this beauty. The wine
could benefit from 7-10 years cellaring and probably last 30 to 40. When all is
said and done, this is an instant classic, the wine full-bodied with oodles of
crème de cassis, pen ink, graphite and baking spices. It is multi-dimensional,
layered, and one of the all-time great Beringer Private Reserves – and there
have been many.
