2016 Beringer "Distinction Series" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $60)

SKU #1568465 94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Made with the idea to highlight richness and opulence, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Distinctions includes slightly more valley floor fruit compared to the Knights Valley Reserve and offers a forward, sexy, incredibly satisfying style as well as lots of blackcurrant fruit, ripe tannins, and impeccable balance. Despite the richer, more forward style, it’s going to evolve just fine on its balance and concentration. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This shows a ripe and flavorful center palate with dark-berry and floral character. Full-bodied, framed and focused. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Distinctions is blended of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petite Sirah, aged in 35% new French oak for 20 months. Deep garnet-purple colored, it bursts from the glass with crème de cassis, blueberry pie and preserved plums over nuances of Chinese five spice, hoisin, chocolate box and dusty soil. Full-bodied, rich and decadent, it has loads of spicy layers and a firm, grainy backbone, finishing on an earthy note. (LPB) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

This is an impressive bottle of wine. At first whiff you know exactly that this is pedigreed Napa Valley Cabernet. There's plenty of fruit on the nose which carries onto the palate. The wine is totally satisfying in every aspect. A mouthful of opulent fruit is framed nicely by ripe but firm tannins giving you that telltale Cabernet Sauvignon experience. This is one very satisfying bottle of wine made even better by an extra nice price.

This is a stunning value in powerful, fruit forward Napa Cabernet. The Distinction Series Cab from Beringer pulls all their winemaking expertise and unrivalled fruit sourcing together and delivers a seriously good, luxurious Napa Cab without costing you a small fortune. After tasting this wine, we took a sizable position on it and managed to further reduce the price, making this one of the sharpest deals of the holiday season. The wine is absolutely jam packed with ripe, lush, dark fruit, blackberry, cassis, mulberry, chocolate ganache, loamy earth and subtle cigar box. Smooth, rounded tannins mean this is good to pop n' pour with or without food. It has all the power and bold flavors that people seek in top cult Cabs but at a seriously affordable price point. This is gonna make a lot of friends as long as it lasts, quantity is limited to this one parcel so don't snooze on this one.
Top Value! Drink from 2021 to 2030
