Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

The Beringer Founders Estate Cabernet bursts with bright cassis, black fruit and sweet brown spice aromas with just a touch of vanilla that leads into a juicy mouthfeel. A balanced dose of structured tannins and its long finish make this unmistakably a California Cabernet. However, this Cabernet doesn't need to be cellared; it's ready to drink now.

This wine is stiff, not bountiful. Sort of like vinegar.

At 6 bucks a bottle (when found on special) this is an acceptable quaffer but I wouldn't expect too much. For a wine with a few years on it I really expected more. Some fruit is there - "bursting" is an overstatement - and the tannins are present but not unpleasant...in fact they are probably what ultimately holds this brew together. Otherwise a bit thin and boring.

Musty, sour, and unremarkable. This house can do so much better.
