Winemaker Notes

"Being very selective in both the vineyard, and later in the winery, was the key in 1998. Vineyards had to be picked cluster by cluster, not block by block or even vine by vine. I chose to use lots from our St. Helena Home, Chabot and Tre Colline vineyards as the core of the wine because they had the best depth and complexity. The cool vintage and lingering clouds on Howell Mountain during harvest made it a challenging year up there - I didn't get the consistent richness through all lots of Bancroft the way I normally do. As a result, I was brutally selective in the blending process, using only the lots that were really up to Private Reserve quality. Consequently, I made less than half of our 'normal' PR production." -Ed Sbragia, Winemaster

"Exhibits a dense ruby/purple color as well as a moderately intense bouquet of black currants infused with olive, smoke, licorice, and new oak. Supple, medium-bodied, and surprisingly evolved, with sweet fruit on the mid-palate and in the finish, it is a harmonious, charming offering to enjoy over the next 7-8 years." -Robert M. Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate December 23, 2000"

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.

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
