Blueberry, pepper, leather, pomegranate, cocoa and cassis. This is an elegant cab from a label known by all. Drinks like a $40 bottle.

This is what I expect a Cab to taste like when I close my eyes and imagine one. From the nose to the finish this is an excellent choice for the price and on it's own merit.

Great value cab! Good dark berry and bramble up front with firm medium tannins on the finish. A great value cab, with all the markings of a typical great cab at a fantastic price.

I grabbed this bottle for giggles. The last time I tasted this was at Beringer with Ed Sbragia a couple decades ago. Non-existent nose, slight funk or barnyard on the attack, followed by cassis. Lighter weight than I remember and a little simple. Structure is great with nice acidity and supple tannins. Getting better as it gets some oxygen.

Super friendly cab. Needed a day to open up. Showing big black fruit. Plum, blackberry. Plush and round. Food friendly acid.

Tightly wound, shy on the nose. Develops appealing purple fruit and subtle chocolate oak, after hours of air time. Overall well balanced and styled, but ungenerous considering the vintage.

So young and alcoholic. Lacked personality and excitement. #beringer #cabernetsauvignon #knightsvalley

This is what a cab should be like. Nice fruit, nice structure. Smooth and well balanced.
