1993 Beringer Vineyards - Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (91 pts) @beringervyds ℹ️ This wine is a blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc from vineyards across the Napa Valley, California. The wine consists of grapes from Napa appellations: 75% Howell Mountain and 25% St Helena. 1993 had rain in the spring ending a five-year drought and followed by a warm summer. The result was a prolonged harvest with optimal ripening conditions. The wine is aged for 20 months in French oak barrels with 💯 new oak. 👁 Deep garnet color with a fading rim. 👃 Medium+ intensity on the nose. Aromas of dried and stewed blackberry, black currant, black cherry, oak, cedar, char, leather, coffee grounds, dark chocolate, dried leaves, and baking spices. 👄 The wine is dry, high acidity, medium-sized resolved tannins, high alcohol (14.5%), and medium+ body. Oak influence and dried fruit are prevalent in the palate. A medium length finish of dried black fruit, dark chocolate, and coffee grounds. 🔔 1993 Beringer Private Reserve, at this point, is a distinguished gentleman of a wine with a story to tell, but not holding up to its former glory. A lovely wine to taste, and if you like aged wines, then you will surely enjoy these bottles over the next few years, but definitely at a plateau that will eventually start to give way. #vin #lovewine #🍷 #wineterroir #wine #beringer #privatereserve #napa #napavalley #napawine #napavalleywine #cabernetsauvignon
