Beringer Bourbon Barrel Aged Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Jacob and Frederick Beringer were true pioneers 150 years ago, when they made their way across the American frontier to plant their first vines in Napa Valley. In 1870 the Beringer family arrived in California from their homeland in Germany. Today the winery is the oldest continuously operating winery in the Napa Valley and founder Jacob Beringer's great, great grandson Mark Beringer is Chief Winemaker, while 20+ year winemaker Laurie Hook transitioned to Beringer's Winemaker Emeritus.
This wine remains true to the bold, pioneering spirit of the Beringer Brothers. Bourbon Barrel Aged Cabernet Sauvignon was aged for sixty days in charred, American oak bourbon barrels. It is bursting with aromas of ripe black cherry, dark chocolate, and vanilla. The palate is lush with ripe tannins and and integrated acidity, showcasing toasted hazelnuts, toffee, and blackberry preserves on the finish.
