    Description

    Beringer Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 1997
    3bn, 3ts, 1nl, 1sos
    Bottle (6)


    "The opaque plum/purple color is followed by a superb nose of smoked herbs, melted licorice, and black currant jam. Full-bodied, with a silky texture, and an opulent personality, this sexy, full-throttle Cabernet Sauvignon will be delicious young, yet last for 18-20 years." (94 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #132, Dec. 2000)

    "Still densely purple-colored, the 1997 exhibits wonderful plum, blackberry, cedar, spice and subtle smoky oak notes, a gorgeously opulent texture, full-bodied power and hints of roasted espresso and white chocolate in the flavors. This beauty can be drunk now and over the next 12-15+ years. One of the all-time great Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserves, it also has the highest production to date of this cuvee." (95 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #195, June 2011)


    Estimate: $475 - $600.
