Wine Review: Beringer's Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Image
Beringer's Cabernet Sauvignon offers a light ruby red wine with a high fruit taste. Think of black berry, plumb, cherry and a touch of pepper. Upon opening you should expect an aroma of high pitched fruit cocktail. Its contour is smooth and offers a mild tannin kick on the back of the tongue with a light palatable aftertaste. Hanging tears are average and the wine is medium bodied in volume.  The Beringer winery started with an interesting immigration story. A German by the name of Jacob Beringer immigrated to New York in 1868. He and his brother moved to California and started one of the first wineries in Napa Valley in 1875 with their purchase of 215 acres for $14,000. They produced 40,000 gallons of wine in the first year which is considered an astonishing amount. In 1967 the winery became a historical landmark and is visited by people from around the world.  The winery has tours open to the public for around $25.
