Truly historic and crucial in the lifeline of California grape growing and wine making over the last 100+ years, the Beringer winery was founded in 1876 by a German immigrant named Jacob Beringer. The fledgling estate continued to grow and prosper into the turn of the century, and even succeeded during Prohibition, under a federal license allowing the family to produce wine for religious purposes; then in the 1930's, Beringer was the first winery to offer public tours, sparking wine tourism in Napa Valley. The 1970's and '80's were a golden era for collectible, extraordinary Cabernets and Chardonnays at Beringer, and in 1990, Beringer Cabernet 1986 was the #1 Wine of the Year in Wine Spectator.

Fast forward to 2015, and founder Jacob Beringer's great, great grandson Mark Beringer 'came home' to Beringer as Chief Winemaker, while 20+ year winemaker Laurie Hook transitioned to Beringer's Winemaker Emeritus. To call this winery EPIC is an understatement. This is their most collectible and famous wine.

I was able to taste to two vintages of the Private Reserve, and the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve comes from a vintage loved by the estate. The final blend is the normal 97% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot brought up in 85% new French oak. This full-bodied, ripe, voluptuous beauty shows the vintage to a T, offering a blast of sweet blackcurrants, licorice, ground herbs, and graphite aromas and flavors. Blockbuster styled, with full body and an expansive, sexy texture, it has the depth and density to continue drinking brilliantly for 20+ years.

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.

Beringer's flagship 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve is tannic, unyielding and not fully put together. I suppose that is not entirely surprising, as most of the fruit was sourced from sites on Howell Mountain. Time in the glass brings out an attractive floral upper register, along with brighter notes in the fruit. Even so, the tannins remain forbidding. There is plenty to look forward to, but readers will have to be patient. The 2015 has been very tight on both occasions I have tasted it so far.
