Beringer Vineyards Private Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1995

$99.95

...from a classic vintage, with a firm band of cedar and spice wrapped around a core of ripe plum, blackberry and black cherry. It fans out to reveal hints of olive and smoke, firming on the finish... - Wine Spectator

I was surprised at how much better this was almost two hours from pop. The profile here is fairly light and bordeaux like. Initially it was mainly herbs de Provence, leather, underripe black cherries and even some tomato like notes on the nose with more of the same on the palate, but then it channeled some smoked meat, plum, and peppercorn characteristics as it opened alongside more bright red and black fruits. Really beefed up and drank younger than it is. I think this can still hold for a few more years, though it’s not getting better. Thanks @Keith Fisher .

The last 20th century wine in my cellar. Several years of life left — took an hour decant to integrate the still-lively tannins.

Out of magnum. Drinking perfectly now. No reason to wait, but you won't be penalized if you hold onto this for another decade.

So sorry;,past it's prime. Probably drinking well 5 years ago. Thin, fruit is barely hanging on.

Something not right. A touch metallic. Sweet fruit but a tinny type finish.

Berries - raspberries, blueberries, cocoa, spice, super smooth and round texture, soft tannins. Starts off more savory and earthy, opens up to fruitier flavors in the glass, drinks pretty youthful for its age.

Still might fine after nearly 25 years, the 1995 Private Reserve exhibits bold tannins with green pepper, black currant, and mint.
