Natalie's Review

Beringer Vineyards Alluvium Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec 2005, Knights Valley, Sonoma, California, United States: The grapes for this beguiling red were grown in the volcanic, alluvial soil of Knights Valley, thus the name Alluvium. The summer of 2005 was cool in Napa, which extended the growing season and allowed the grapes to further develop flavor, color and tannin until they were hand-picked in October. This gives the wine incredible depth as it floods the senses with black cherries, violets and ground black pepper. Winemaker Laurie Hook has blended Merlot (74%), Cabernet Sauvignon (22%) and small amounts of Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot. This wine will keep in the cellar for at least ten years, if not longer. Drink: 2009-2020. 393447 14.40% D 750 mL  $49.95 Score: 94/100. September 12, 2009  Full Review
