Beringer Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2006
Vintages Wine Panel: This is textbook Napa Cab. Big and robust, with aromas of cassis, black cherry, raspberry pie, graphite, tar, and tobacco. Dry, full bodied and delectably
ripe and concentrated, with soft yet sturdy tannins providing structure. Fresh acidity lifts
the fruit into the spectrum of red cherry and currants, leading to a long, pure fruit finish
with just a touch of smoke. Savour over the next 5+ years with a porterhouse steak. My note: Gorgeous concentration and depth in this black-fruited wonder. Aromas of dark plums and blackberries wrapped in smoke and dark spices. A great persistence of flavour on the palate leads to a long and satisfying finish.

Opinions about wine differ greatly as the experience is subjective. You may find it helpful to compare this critical evaluation of the wine with mine as well as your own:
|“The 2006 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is evocative of the rich terroir of Napa Valley, yet a wine that I find to be immediately approachable and appealing. I pick up aromas of cassis and cherry accented by licorice and roasted coffee. The wine has a plush mouthfeel complemented by flavor notes of black fruit and brown spice, and there is bright blackberry finish.”|
