    December 18, 2022 - World Cup final BBQ: Vibrant red cherry fruit that got fuller and rounder with time in the glass. Quite a bit of sweetness but just about not overdone. No greenness at all to this, probably this was picked much riper than contemporary Napas of its time.

    July 14, 2022 - Nese: Plommer, moreller, tobakk, blyantspiss og sigar. Munn: Moreller, tobakk, blomster, tørket frukt. Utrolig lekker balanse og lengde. Vanvittig flott vin. Kombinasjonen av friskhet, kons og struktur er helt i toppklasse. Svært lang! (Mange toppårganger i Bordeaux ble nevt, men når vi fikk servert 1993 var dette åpenbar US. Produsent var det ingen som nailet. Dunn, Opus, Myacamas ble nevnt, men nei. Fasit: Beringer Private reserve 1993. Utrolig flott vin, og veldig utypsik Beringer. 14,5 alkohol, og balanse i særklasse. 95 poeng lett!!

    April 27, 2022 - Popped and decanted for an hour. The cork was already crusty. Consider using an ah-so or Durand to open.

    Bricking and showing it's age.
    Ripened/dried raisins and cherries, drinking velvety smooth with nice acidity still. This is drinking wonderfully. Such a solid producer. Will probably stay intact for another few years.

    This went really well with BBQ and helps mellow out the spices as well.

    (Beringer Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve) From magnum - opaque dark red violet color; big, cassis, berry, black currant, black fruit nose; tasty, solid, rich, ripe black fruit, berry, faintly herbal palate with soft tannins; medium-plus finish (much, much better in this format than when I had it in 750 ml earlier this year)
