       This version is full bodied, round, and intensely flavored, tasting of cherry, cedar, tobacco, toast,
           herbs, and blackberry. Enjoy this wine with rabbit stew, beef tortillas, roast venison, and
           barbecued lamb.Familie startet i 1982 med Glen Ellen som blev solgt i 1993

   Parker 88: The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon may be in an awkward, closed stage, but it shows good
    promise. Its deep ruby color is accompanied by aromas of underbrush, spicy oak, and black currants.
    Medium to full body, with plum, licorice, spice, and black currant flavors, this elegant Cabernet should
    be at its finest between 2006-2012.
Klima
   Meget solskin
   Store forskelle på klima og temperaturer også inden for små
    afstande grundet bjergene og havet.

   Coast Range er en række barske skovklædte bjergkæder, der
    mange gange når helt ud til Stillehavskysten. Det er en forholdsvis
    lav kæde med få tinder højere end 1200 meter.
   Sierra Nevada, der også løber parallelt med kysten, omkring 160 til
    200 kilometer inde i landet.

    De fleste af vinområderne ligger i en overgangszone, hvor
    forholdene varierer mellem disse to klimamæssige yderpunkter. I
    disse områder er de naturlige betingelser for at dyrke druer og
    fremstille vin næste ideelle. Solrige, varme og tørre dage ledsages
    af kølige havbriser og en tåge, der hver aften ruller ind i dalene
    som et naturligt aircondition-anlæg. Resultatet er en lang
    vækstsæson, hvor druerne modnes langsomt og jævnt til en
    distinkt “frugtmarkeret” kvalitet, som vinentusiaster verden over
    betragter som det, der giver de californiske vine deres
    kvalitetsstempel.

   This wine is expressive of what Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon can be at its best. A juicy core of fruit floods
    the mouth, laden with ripe cherries, dark plums, peppery herbs and blackberry. Blending from select vineyard
    blocks in the valley’s middle corridor offers a pleasing blend of supple tannins from Oakville and Rutherford.
    Darker fruit flavors, richness and bigger, chalkier tannins are from our sites in the Howell Mountain and
    Stagecoach vineyards along the Vaca mountain range. French oak adds delicate spice and vanilla." –

   Parker 92p: The dense purple-colored 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa possesses abundant quantities of
    black currant fruit, a liqueur-like aspect to its flavor intensity, sweet tannin, and a long, velvety-textured, juicy
    finish. Like many top 2001s, it will be approachable upon release, and age well for 10-15 years.

chocolate and kirsch cherries. On the palate, expect a velvety
explosion of blueberries, raspberry liquor, black fig and dark
cherry bolstered by ripe tannins. With time in the cellar, this
multifaceted wine will continue to develop complexity and flavor.

               Parker 90p: A proprietary Bordeaux blend (mostly
                Cabernet Sauvignon with a bit of Merlot and Petit
                Verdot included), the 2001 Puzzle is a firmly
                structured, tannic offering. While it is nearly
                impenetrable, gobs of fruit, significant depth, and
                a long, structured, firm finish are apparent. It
                tastes like a young Bordeaux rather than a typical
                North Coast California Cabernet Sauvignon-based
                blend. Frankly, I would not touch a bottle for 6-7
                years. It should last for two decades.

              This release offers solid layers of dark, juicy Cabernet fruit,
              classic blackberry and cherry, plus herbs, cedar, and black
              pepper spread over a sweet, jazzy core. American oak adds
              spice, vanilla, char and coconut.

             Topvine: Hillside select (CS) og Recently (Syrah)

             WS 87p:Intense and concentrated at its best, with a tightly wound band of
              earthy currant, anise, cedar and sage. Picks up a spice note and then
              mouthcoating tannins on the finish. A controversial wine because of
              bottle variation. Other samples were quite leathery. Best from 2008
              through 2013.
             Parker 91p: The chunky, rustic 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon possesses
              aggressive tannin in its big, corpulent personality. It should drink well for
              a decade. Shafer Vineyards, one of the most impeccably run wineries in
              the world, is a wonderful family operation that deserves all the success
              they have earned.

Parker 96p: When all of these cuvees are blended together, the result is the finest
Cabernet Sauvignon yet made by Ed Sbragia, the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Private
Reserve (11,000 cases of truly divine Cabernet nectar). For statisticians, 44% came
from the Steinhauer Vineyard, 1% from Bancroft Ranch, 17% from Rancho del Oso, 3%
from Chabot, 13% from St. Helena Home Ranch, 0% from Quarry Vineyard, and the
balance from Marston Vineyard. As I reported last year, the 2001 is an extraordinary
effort. Large-scaled yet elegant, it boasts classic notes of creme de cassis, chocolate, and
smoky oak. With extraordinary voluptuousness, great concentration, tremendous
intensity, and a finish that lasts nearly 60 seconds, this saturated purple-colored, full-
bodied Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the greatest wines ever made at Beringer. It is a
tribute to the brilliant Ed Sbragia. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2023.

WS 90: A massive youngster, with a fine structure and firm, chewy tannins. Dense and
concentrated, only offering glimpses of what lies ahead. Shows dried currant, herb, sage


and wild berry flavors. Needs time. Best from 2008 through 2014
