Beringer Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve 2008

Beringer Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve 750ML 2008     
Sku: 13905

Review
Production: 8,700 cases; Alcohol: 14.4%; Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon; Harvest Dates: September 14 to October 16. This blend of fruit from Steinhauer Ranch (42%), St. Helena Home Vineyard (18%), Bancroft Ranch (15%), Marston Ranch (11%), and the rest tiny quantities from Chabot Vineyard, Rancho del Oso and Lampyridae emerged from an unusual growing season for Napa. Heavy rains in February were followed by hot weather in March, April and May, and cooler than normal weather in June, July and August. The harvest began early and finished a short four weeks later, an unusually quick harvest. Sweet notes of licorice, cedar wood, blackberries, toast, pepper and bay leaf are all present in this big, full-bodied, opulent, lusty California-styled wine. Exotic with loads of fruit and on a fast evolutionary track, the 2004 can be drunk now or cellared for another 10-15 years.

Rating
Patience required for this taut, dense, focused effort, with layers of mineral, cedar, dried berry, black licorice and espresso. Shows great structure and focus, yet this is very tight and backward now. Best from 2013 through 2023. 1,211 cases made. –JL
