Winemaker Notes

"One of the hardest wines to find among Beringer's superstars is their Chabot Vineyard (from the Napa Valley) Cabernet Sauvignon. The production of approximately 300 cases is aged in 100% new oak and is made from frightfully small yields. The 1992 may merit a perfect score in time. It is as spectacular and riveting a Cabernet as I have ever tasted from California. Its seamless personality offers extraordinarily rich, black fruit scents intertwined with aromas of spices, flowers, herbs, licorice, and chocolate. The wine fills the mouth but never tastes heavy or overdone, rather amazing given its intensity. This superbly rendered, potentially legendary Cabernet Sauvignon is sure to have Cabernet enthusiasts scrambling over the tiny quantities that will be released in a year or so." - Robert Parker

Critical Acclaim

RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The most difficult Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon to find and purchase is the 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Beringer's 25-acre Chabot Vineyard. This wine spends two years in 100% new French oak, and gives every indication of being a 20-30-year wine. Readers should keep an eye out for the release in March, 1997 of the 1992 Cabernet Sauvignon Chabot Vineyard. This wine has thrown off some of its formidable tannin, and should prove to be one of the potential candidates for the wine of the vintage. It exhibits an opaque purple color, followed by a huge, smoky, Asian spice, black fruit, mineral, and earthy-scented nose that soars from the glass. Thick, full-bodied, and powerful, with layers of fruit, this is an awesomely rich (too concentrated for some readers?) wine that is accessible, but in need of another 2-3 years of cellaring. The 1992 should be at its peak of perfection by 2002-2005, and keep for another 15-20 years.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Dark, ripe, rich and concentrated, brimming with juicy plum, cherry, currant, anise and black cherry flavors. Shows uncommon finesse and polish for a young wine, finishing with ripe, full tannins. Delicious.

Image of winery
No winery or vineyard more thoroughly embodies the timeless appeal and seductive flavor of Napa Valley than Beringer Vineyards, Napa's benchmark producer since the establishment of the vineyard in 1876.

Now in its third century of crafting classic wines from Napa's finest appellations and vineyards, Beringer today is guided by the inspired partnership of celebrated Winemaster Emeritus Ed Sbragia and Winemaker Laurie Hook. Together, they craft Napa Valley wines that speak eloquently of the rich heritage of the Beringer Vineyard, while offering cutting-edge quality and contemporary elegance. The exquisite wines crafted at the Beringer Vineyards display a single minded dedication and pursuit of excellence instilled by its founder, Jacob Beringer.

St. Helena

View all wine

St. Helena is in the heart of the Napa Valley, nestled between Calistoga to its north and Rutherford on its southern border. On its western side, the Mayacamas Mountains guard it from the cooling effects of the Pacific Ocean; to its east stand the Vaca Mountains. In conjunction, these mountain ranges serve to lock in summer daytime heat. But in the evening, cool air from the San Pablo Bay funnels uo through the valley, creating very chilly nights. It isn’t uncommon for temperatures to drop 50 degrees, a shift that promotes the development of ideal ripeness and acidity balance in the grapes.

St. Helena contains a plethora of different soil types in a small area, which have been enhanced over centuries by rain runoff from both mountain ranges. Its vineyards cover a variety of terrain, spreading across the bucolic valley floor and its benchlands.

These ideal topographic and climatic growing conditions easily caught the attention of early winemaking pioneers. In fact, St. Helena is the birthplace of Napa Valley’s commercial wine industry. Dr. Crane founded his cellar in 1859, David Fulton in 1860 and Charles Krug in 1861.

Today there are no less than 400 separate vineyards planted within the 12,000 acres that make up the St. Helena appellation.

Revered most for its red wines based on Bordeaux varieties, the St. Helena appellation is also a source of superior Syrah, Zinfandel and Sauvignon blanc.

Cabernet Sauvignon

View all wine

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon is sometimes referred to as the “king” of red grapes. It can be somewhat unapproachable early in its youth but has the potential to age beautifully, with the ability to last fifty years or more at its best. Small berries and tough skins provide its trademark firm tannic grip, while high acidity helps to keep the wine fresh for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in temperate climates like Bordeaux's Medoc region (and in St-Emillion and Pomerol, where it plays a supporting role to Merlot). The top Médoc producers use Cabernet Sauvignon for their wine’s backbone, blending it with Merlot and smaller amounts of Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot. On its own, Cabernet Sauvignon has enjoyed great success throughout the world, particularly in the Napa Valley, and is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and sought-after “cult” wines.

In the Glass

High in color, tannin, and extract, Cabernet Sauvignon expresses notes of blackberry, cassis, plum, currant, spice, and tobacco. In Bordeaux and elsewhere in the Old World you'll find the more earthy, tannic side of Cabernet, where it's typically blended to soften tannins and add complexity. In warmer regions like California and Australia, you can typically expect more ripe fruit flavors upfront.

Perfect Pairings

Cabernet Sauvignon is right at home with rich, intense meat dishes—beef, lamb, and venison, in particular—where its opulent fruit and decisive tannins make an equal match to the dense protein of the meat. With a mature Cabernet, opt for tender, slow-cooked meat dishes.

Sommelier Secrets

Despite the modern importance and ubiquity of Cabernet Sauvignon, it is actually a relatively young variety. In 1997, DNA revealed the grape to be a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc which took place in 17th century southwestern France.
