2001 Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve, Napa Valley

Deep ruby color. Even after 1 hour of opening bottle, it becomes very showy with blackberry, dark cherry, currant and refined oak. This wine is just outright elegance. Full body and fleshy but at the same time "seductive," and I don't normally use this word for a Cab. Semi-sweet in flavors plus more currant, dark chocolate, and cherry syrup. It's amazing how a wine can be sumptuous and succulent at the same time. Today it is even better than when I tasted it at the winery. One would mistake this for a supreme sample of Bordeaux. 94 points. Best from 2010-15. (23 months in new French Nevers Oak. 14.2% alcohol).

I believe this is the same wine that goes into the largest wine bottle in the world.
