1993 Beringer "Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #310067 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A more mineral-dominated wine, the 1993 Private Reserve offers notes of cedarwood, black cherries, black currants, damp earth, underbrush and forest floor. It is the product of a lower than normal crop, some shatter during berry set and a general reduction of fruit by nearly 30% in some vineyards. August and September alternated between cool periods and large heat spikes. This was a challenging year, but the seemingly fully mature wine has turned out very well. (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2011)

92 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark Beringer has not received enough credit over the years for the success of its flagship Cabernet Sauvignon, and yet it always seems to show well with age when others are beginning to break down. In this vintage, it has come further than any of the wines tasted, and it now features complex cedary, lightly herbal and dried currant aromas whose fruit may have diminished over time but whose energy and richness continue apace. And it is much the same in the mouth where its polished, supple entry leads into still alive flavors and noticeable tannins. *Two Stars* Inner quote mark (10/2007)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Good full red. Slightly exotic, wild aromas of red berries, flowers, leather, truffle and underbrush. Smaller-scaled than the 1992, showing sexy earth tones and sound framing acidity. Tannins turn a bit dusty on the back end but this wine is à point right now. Drink through 2020. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2015)
