Beringer Distinction Series Cabernet 2014 | The Steal of 2020
The Beringer Distinction Series Cabernet 2014 presents vivid aromas of fresh boysenberry and ripe, dark fruits. These are accented by hints of leather and dark chocolate notes. The wine is full-bodied with a dense concentration of flavors and plush tannins that underpin the solid structure. Drink in 2021, but very approachable now in a fruit-forward way.
This Cabernet blend of Reserve Vineyards from Beringer: Bancroft Ranch & Steinhauer on Howell Mountain, Martson Ranch on Spring Mountain, and the Home Vineyard in St Helena form the foundation of this mountain and valley floor decadent red. All of these great sites make their way into the famed “Private Reserve Cabernet” from Beringer. So quality is through the roof. Most of all, Beringer Distinction Series Cabernet 2014 delivers some of the best Cabernet in Napa for a fraction of a price of other famed producers
James Suckling notes “Lots of ripe fruit to this cab with dried berries, cherries, currants, and chocolate undertones. Full and powerful, yet there are freshness and firmness to it all”. Our Wine Scouts were blown away by this wine after tasting it. How could they put so much amazing fruit into this bottle at this price? We are not sure but all we do know is that this is “the steal of 2019” so far. So, go big on this Beringer Distinction Series Cabernet 2014, you won’t be disappointed.
Over the past 141 years, Beringer has built its name on quality and consistency. The oldest continuously operating winery in Napa Valley (they used a federal license during Prohibition that allowed them to make wine for religious purposes), they’ve been instrumental in both the development of Napa’s international reputation while simultaneously serving as a critical link to its past.
