Beringer Vineyards Private Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

$125

Revealing the great blending skills of Beringer's winemaking team, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve is a winner. Having purchased Private Reserves for many years, I can attest that they age incredibly well... The sensational 2012...boasts an opaque purple color along with abundant aromas of charcoal, burning embers, creme de cassis, chocolate, blackberries and licorice. The long, complex, compelling, full-bodied texture along with terrific purity and a savory, rich mouthfeel result in a classic, quintessential Napa Cabernet Sauvignon to drink now and over the next 20-25 years.

Very solid wine. Definitely taste the chocolate with hints of black fruit. This is a must try. Give it 30 mins to really open up and it goes well with steak.

Truthfully one of the best Napa cabs I have ever tasted. New 2012 vintage is very approachable now - a beguiling mature mellowness underlying it's power.

Just released and so very young but this is going to be a great one. Beautiful, smooth and great structure.

An absolute truck. Some excellent structure on this, which is atypical considering the vintage. A wine to bury in the cellar.

Needs around an hour to open up, smooth wine with hints of blackberry. Has good depth of flavour. Not much finish but a very easy drinking wine. Drank the 2012 vintage in Nov 2019
