Beringer Distinction Series Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|California, Napa Valley
The deep garnet color hints at the pomegranate and acai within. Crème de cassis and blueberry pie play against oak, cloves and black olive on the full-bodied palate. Opulent to the point of decadence with excellent depth and a firm, grainy backbone, this finishes with a lingering, earthy note.
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Distinctions is a heady, opulent wine made mostly from vineyards in St. Helena and Calistoga. Inky dark fruit, chocolate, sweet new oak,licorice and vanillin are front and center. This is a decidedly opulent, open-knit wine that will drink well with minimal cellaring.
