Beringer Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Chabot Vineyard 2005
WA92: The top cuvees 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena Home Vineyard, 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Chabot Vineyard, and the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Quarry Vineyard were more complete and fuller-bodied with deeper, bluer, blacker fruits, more complete textures, and very long finishes. All of these wines possesses 15-20 years of aging potential.
VM91+: Good full, bright ruby. Aromas of black cherry, currant, flowers and licorice. Sweet and lush but juicy, with a supple texture to its black raspberry and floral flavors. Sexy wine, and not at all a blockbuster. Finishes with subtle length, enticing violet lift and firm-edged acidity that calls for at least a few years of cellaring.
