WNH event number 4. Perfect Pizza Pairing bottles. Not a bad bottle in the bunch!

32yrs young and doing just fine. Needed some time to come out of its slumber but it sported sour red and black fruits with older tobacco and charred plum. Drink up. Nice

Another 4th Friday for the books, and one of the best of the year!

Prunes and cranberry; acidity and tannin have fallen off; tertiary flavors carry it...old cedar; muddled strawberry tart and old red licorice. Its best days are behind it, but it’s still got life.

Shockingly youthful, would thought mid 90’s+. Just an incredible bottle that shows how well the older Napa cabs can age.

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!
