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.

Alcohol By Volume: 13.9%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Original Wine Note: The 1999 Beringer Private Reserve is a paradigm for the argument that great wines should not be made by recipe. Because of microclimate variations on Howell Mountain in 1999, our Tre Colline Vineyard produced grapes that were riper, with more completely developed aromas, flavors and tannins than Bancroft Ranch, usually a Private Reserve favorite. The resulting wine has a rich texture, with dense cassis and blackberry fruit charactersitics matched by notes of cedar spice and earth. 2007 Tasting Note:

Cherry, brown spice, slightly earthy, cedar.
Pretty and elegant with sweet fruit.
Medium body, good finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Ruby-red. Highly nuanced nose combines currant, plum, smoky oak, minerals, licorice and mint. Wonderfully sweet, sappy and dense. The most complex of these '99 cabernets, with enticing flavors of currant, minerals and brown spices. Very long, slow-building finish features big but sweet and fine tannins. Suave and impressive.
Rating: 92-95"
95 Points

"Complex aromas of currant, herb, tobacco, olive and cedar lead to similar flavors in a rich, concentrated yet elegant presentation. Turns smooth and creamy, with vanilla, mocha and blackberry flavors peeking through on the finish. Best from 2005 through 2014. 10,000 cases made."
93 Points

"Big and oaky, as Private Reserves always are, the ’99 is a textbook toasty Chardonnay. Apple, peach and plum aromas and flavors are wrapped in a smooth, smoky cocoon. The rich and supple palate feel is a winner, the long finish still tight. Enjoyable already, but should be held for a few years."

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
