Beringer Wine & Spirits

Refine By

Red Wine by Beringer from Napa Valley, California. The black fruit and berry flavors in this Merlot are so rich and ripe that it c...ould almost fool you into thinking it was a Cabernet, but there is a haunting difference - a note of licorice or anise that identifies it immediately for me as Bancroft Ranch Merlot. A wine should have a signature, a consistency of style that identifies it while allowing for the variations that are inevitable and fascinating from vintage to vintage. In this 1995 vintage, the texture is almost chewy but supple, a characteristic I love in Merlot. The flavor is big but layered - those dark berries, the anise backed up by some mint and cedar, and the sweet, toasty oak - so that you want to taste it again and again to explore everything that's going on in the wine. read more


Red Wine by Beringer from Napa Valley, California. Original Wine Note: The 1999 Beringer Private Reserve is a paradigm for the arg...ument that great wines should not be made by recipe. Because of microclimate variations on Howell Mountain in 1999, our Tre Colline Vineyard produced grapes that were riper, with more completely developed aromas, flavors and tannins than Bancroft Ranch, usually a Private Reserve favorite. The resulting wine has a rich texture, with dense cassis and blackberry fruit charactersitics matched by notes of cedar spice and earth.2007 Tasting Note: Cherry, brown spice, slightly earthy, cedar. Pretty and elegant with sweet fruit. Medium body, good finish. read more
