Please don’t let my somewhat modest rating deter you from seeking this out. It simply isn’t my preferred style of Napa CS any longer and I primarily use Delectable for my own internal notes.

WOW... Beringer Private Reserve. This has another 15 years of life in it. Can’t believe this drinking so nicely. Totally surprised!!

Another 4th Friday for the books. What a much needed time out of the house and to be with friends after this past week.

En mag! A stellar open by
@Mark Flesher . I haven’t had many Beringer PR, and I think this was my first bottle en mag. Mushroom and tar up front gave way to new leather and a red fruit/black fruit medley. Very Bordeaux-like at this age. I’m sure Mark will add to this with a better description!

Just a few wines we will be having on our cruise this week.


First wine of the cruise at 150 Central Park. Decanted for around two hours. Mix of dark ruby and garnet red. Dark nose with graphite, crushed purple flowers, and bark. Sitting in the glass for an hour more it started opening up with dark berries and dark gravel. Medium plus tannins (7.5/10) with a full body. Layered palate with some secondary notes of forest floor, mushrooms, red berries and cassis. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2029.

The last 20th century wine in my cellar. Several years of life left — took an hour decant to integrate the still-lively tannins.
