1992 Beringer "Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #300116 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Made from a blend of fruit from four vineyards, Bancroft Ranch (57%), State Lane (now known as the Kapcsandy Vineyard) (21%), St. Helena Home Vineyard (14%) and Chabot (5%), 1992’s growing season was in total contrast to the preceding vintages. It was warm, even hot, with early bud break and some unusual rain in June. However, the following months were super-dry and hot, which caused an early start to the harvest. It turned out to be a classic Napa vintage in its exuberance and rich fruit. Although totally dry, it reveals a sweeter style with higher alcohol and glycerin and an impression of unctuosity and viscosity. While it does not exhibit the complexity of either the 1990 or 1991, it possesses a dense purple color along with a sexy, up-front, effusive, flamboyant style. (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2011)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Good full, dark red. Red berries, menthol and mint on the nose, plus a slightly evolved balsamic note; clearly less ripe than the 1991 bottling. Supple, sweet and easygoing, offering flavors of red berries and plum jam. Fat and attractive but without the spine of the most important vintages. Finishes plush and persistent, with dusty tannins. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2015)
