Beringer Knights Valley Alluvium Red 2001
Bordeaux Red Blends
from Sonoma County, California
Merlot has a kind of soothing suppleness in comparison with the structured power of Cabernet. I think thats why the two grapes work so well together in the proportions I've selected for this wine. Knights Valley Merlot has a sweet, ripe black cherry, blackberry core thats particularly appealing in this vintage, and thats the character and flavor that prevail here. The Cabernet Sauvignon underlines the cherry, berry fruit flavors but adds a subtle minty herbal note and a bit of backbone. Then the other three varietals bring in their individual flavors and textures. The result, to me, is a wine with lots of personality, very expressive of our Knights Valley Vineyard.

I love this wine ! I thought that the 1997 was going to be hard to beat, but this wine, although firmer and younger, has all of the qualities of the 1997. Alluvium only gets better after decanting as its rich bouquet of strawberries and vanilla blend together on the pallet.
