Tasting Notes

The impressive, deep ruby/purple-hued 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Steinhauer Ranch (one of the component parts of Beringer’s Private Reserve Cabernet) reveals scents of plums, anise, crushed rocks, flowers, and earth. This beautifully dense wine with moderately high tannins should be cellared for 3-4 years, and drunk over the following two decades.
