Lot #545. Beringer Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve 1996

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 95 WE.
"This wine is still young and precocious, but don't judge it too quickly. Let it air in your glass, and watch how it changes. One minute it's all cherries and smoke; the next it heaves up a great draught of currants, cocoa and cedar. It's a big wine but deceptive; the tannins are airy and lilting, there's charm and underneath, enormous complexity. It's best left alone for a few more years, but it's really very lovely . . ." Wine Enthusiast, 2/1/2001
Provenance: The Maquereau Cellar
Notes: Nicked, very lightly scuffed label.
Lot Location: Orange County
