Beringer Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Product #32576 (In Stock)
Beringer Private  Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Beringer Private  Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Legendary Beringer winemaker Ed Sbragia helped create Private Reserve in 1976, his first year at the winery.  The wine began as a single-vineyard bottling from what is now Chabot Vineyard, but over time has been built from the winery’s best-performing sites each year.  The 2013 is all about mountain fruit, with the bulk of the wine coming from Steinhauer and Bancroft Ranches on Howell Mountain plus about 11% from the St. Helena Home Vineyard.  Decant this for 3+ hours if you want to try it today, but it’s best to wait until 2023 and then enjoy for decades to come.

"A big, dense wine, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve is solid. Much fresher and more delineated than the single-vineyard wines, the 2013 captures the freshness and overall intensity of the year. Graphite, smoke, inky blue/purplish fruit, wild flowers and lavender meld together to form an attractive mélange of aromas and flavors."  Vinous (Galloni) 95 points

"One of the great efforts of recent years, and not surprisingly so, is the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve, a blend of 81% from Howell Mountain, 11% from St. Helena and the rest Calistoga and Mount Veeder. It is a blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot aged 20 months in 84% new French oak. At 15.2% natural alcohol, this is a big boy, but also classic Napa Cabernet Sauvignon with crème de cassis, graphite, licorice, and a touch of spicy oak. Winemaker Laurie Hook, who has since departed as winemaker, really hit a home run with this beauty. The wine could benefit from 7-10 years cellaring and probably last 30 to 40. When all is said and done, this is an instant classic, the wine full-bodied with oodles of crème de cassis, pen ink, graphite and baking spices. It is multi-dimensional, layered, and one of the all-time great Beringer Private Reserves – and there have been many. Drink 2023-2066"Wine Advocate 97 points
