Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Napa Valley, California, United StatesAt times this wine can be overrated, but in 2015, it is the real deal, especially the rich, supple, dense, fat-rich tannins that carry through the entire wine. Traditionally this wine has been made to consumed young, and despite its heft, 2015 could fit that bill. Far more open and approachable than the Reserve, it’s classic valley floor Napa. The attack is smoky with super-ripe blackberry jam, chocolate, and tobacco. It’s 15 percent alcohol, but all of the other factors are in balance, so it's not a distraction. Try this now with barbecued back ribs and a decade down the road with roast beef. The fruit is a mix of sites that goes into French barrels, 50% new, and aged for fourteen months.Tasted: 02 November 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 49.99 private wine shops ON 49.95 LCBO AB 43.00 private wine shops NS 40.99 NSLC Producer: Beringer Napa Valley VineyardsDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
