2001 Beringer "Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1015676 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Just hitting late adolescence, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon cuvee exhibits an opaque dark purple color along with a beautiful, smoky, sweet black currant, licorice, truffle, toast and underbrush-scented nose. With fabulous concentration, great intensity and tremendous purity, this voluptuously textured, full-bodied classic is one of the all-time great Beringer Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignons. While drinkable now, it will continue to evolve for at least another 20 years. Of all the superb Private Reserve vintages, the 2001 ranks alongside the 1991, 1994, 1995, 1997, 2005 and 2007.

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Pure but reticent scents of dark berries, black cherry, licorice, leather, cocoa powder, violet and earth. Fine-grained and quite firm on entry, conveying a high pitch to its still-tight dark fruit, menthol, violet and spice flavors. A lively, savory midweight in a European direction, not as sweet as this wine can be in hotter years. In fact, this is rather uncompromising owing to its spine of minerality--and tighter than an outstanding bottle I tasted five years ago. Finishes with firm-edged, building tannins that may yet soften further. Turned a bit dusty with air, but remained juicy and alive. In fact, my sample lost nothing with 48 hours in the recorked bottle. (ST) 92+ Inner quote mark (6/2020)
