Beringer

Exceptional depth, complexity and elegance. The final blend has aromas of Bing cherries, cocoa, cedar, allspice and mint. Generous cherry, blackberry and plum flavors are complemented by velvety tannins, resulting in a superbly long and elegant finish.

Wine Advocate

The trial blend of the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve also looks to be sensational. It could turn out better than the 2004. Contrary to some of the reports I have heard that production is enormous, there are only around 10,000 cases of the Private Reserve, and 200-250 cases of each single vineyard component. The 2005 Private Reserve reveals a dense ruby/purple color as well as a sweet nose of blackberries, crushed rocks, and spring flowers. It possesses a more Bordeaux-like structure than the more opulent 2004, but there is no shortage of depth, richness, glycerin, or power. The vintage's freshness and vibrancy are well presented in this beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon. It should hit its prime by 2012-2013, and last until 2025+.

Score: 94-96. —Robert Parker, December 2007.

Wine Spectator

Offers richness, concentration and depth while remaining elegant and supple, focusing on the ripe, spicy currant, mineral, herb and sage notes. Ends with a measure of finesse and polish, with the right mix of tannins. Drink now through 2016. 9,709 cases made.

Score: 93. —James Laube, October 15, 2008.
