1994 Beringer "Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #300927 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A stunning, seamless Cabernet Sauvignon, it boasts abundant notes of white chocolate, creme de cassis, woodsmoke, spice box, licorice and forest floor, superb concentration, a full-bodied mouthfeel, sweet, integrated tannin and admirable youthfulness as well as freshness. This is one of the most Bordeaux-like wines in this vertical, with the lead pencil shavings and scorched earth characteristics pointing toward a Graves style. This beauty will continue to drink well for another two decades. (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2011)

93 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark Here is another stunning wine from Beringer. It is even deeper and richer than its attractive 1993 mate, yet it is lower in alcohol at the same time and impeccably balanced in all of its pieces. Its aromas share the slight herbal tinge of the '93 and find cocoa, caramel, tobacco, cassis and black cherry notes filling the wine in at every stop. Latter palate acid and tannin buttress the fruit and suggest that the wine has years to go before it becomes fully mature. $75 and two stars when first reviewed. *Two Stars* Inner quote mark (10/2007)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Good deep red. Complex but reticent aromas of redcurrant, plum, dried flowers and minerals. Broad, dry and backward; strongly mineral-driven and showing little easy sweetness. Substantial dusty tannins could still use another few years of patience--or some time in a decanter. This struck me as a distinctly old-fashioned version of California Cabernet. (ST) 91+ Inner quote mark (7/2015)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Ultraripe and fleshy in texture, with a nice mix of mocha, currant, blackberry and stewed plum flavors that turn supple and graceful on the palate, finishing with a smooth aftertaste and ripe, integrated tannins. (JL) Inner quote mark (11/2004)
