A special three vintage vertical of Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, one bottle each from the 2013, 2014 and 2015 vintages.
BERINGER 2013 PRIVATE RESERVE CABERNET SAUVIGNON
“One of the great efforts of recent years, and not surprisingly so, is the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve. 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. 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.” –Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
BERINGER 2014 PRIVATE RESERVE CABERNET SAUVIGNON
“Always the best of all of them is the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve. The wine has an inky purple color, a big, sweet kiss of pen ink, graphite, cedar wood, licorice, blackberries and blackcurrants with some background oak, but it’s dominated by the fruit extract and the full-bodied richness and glycerin this wine possesses. The texture is open and lush, and the wine more forward and sexy than the 2013 was at a similar stage of development. It should drink well for 20-25 years, as these wines have an impeccable track record of ageability.” –Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
BERINGER 2015 PRIVATE RESERVE CABERNET SAUVIGNON
“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, October 2017
