As per previous note last year, very savoury with little or no fruit left. A lovely old bottle of aged Napa cabernet which in all honesty probably has seen better days but enjoyable none the less. Medium to long finish of ultra-fine tannins. Based on this bottle it is time to drink up.
Deep garnet in colour. Very savoury nose with notes of subtle spices and tobacco. Palate is very approachable, savoury with dark stone fruits and spice. Very elegant wine with a medium to long subtle finish. As per other notes, the fruit is fading so would recommend to drink this within the next year or so. For $20 and plenty of patience, this is bang for your buck Knights Valley cabernet. Well done Beringer!
Tasted double-blind, this deep garnet/amber wine offers aromas of sassafras, chocolate, pipe tobacco and red plum. On the palate, it is full-bodied, has medium acidity, seamless alcohol (13.9%) and melted tannins. The flavors mirror the nose and the middle palate is solid. Concluding tart and with medium length, this 17-year-old Cabernet is still pleasant to drink. That said, it would best be consumed within the next year or two (as the fruit is waning). Drink now-2016.
