Martin Geleynse rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Blended with smaller amounts of Merlot, Petit Verdot, Zinfandel and other varieties, this wine is lightly spiced and in balance, despite its powerful approach to ripeness. Tobacco, clove and black pepper enliven the darker, denser aspects of blackberry jam and dark chocolate, finishing unabashedly rich. Score - 91. (Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast, Nov. 1, 2019)
Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A Napa Valley full-bodied blend that is predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, it presents medium ruby in the glass with spicy and peppery aromas and a hint of tobacco. There is blackberry fruit on the palate that continues through to the finish. Medium to high tannins so decanting or further ageing is recommended. Pair with beef. Tasted February 2020.
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This is a dense, smooth drinking Cabernet Sauvignon with a bit of Merlot, Petit Verdot and Zinfandel adding interest. Rich and ample dark, brambly fruit showing on the nose and palate with nice weight and balance. Silky with a long, rich finish. This deserves Chateaubriand. Tasted February 2020. www.thewineloverskitchen.com




Natalie's Review

Beringer Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, Napa Valley, California, United States: From Beringer, a classic Cabernet Sauvignon blended with splashes of Merlot, Petit Verdot and Zinfandel. Ripe and juicy on the palate with blackberry compote, dark chocolate and savoury spice flavours lush and smooth n the palate. Nicely done! Pair with grilled steak.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
