Beringer Chabot Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2000, Napa Valley, California, United States: A round, supple, full-bodied red with layered complexity of dark red fruit. Long finish. The Chabot Vineyard is located east of the Silverado Trail and north of the road that goes up Howell Mountain to Bancroft Ranch and Steinhauer Ranch.
