96 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate (October 2013)

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve is built from completely different sources. Sixty-six percent came from the St. Helena Home Ranch, 18% from the Chabot Vineyard, and the rest from Beringer’s estates in St.

Helena, Rutherford and Coombsville. It is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that came in at 14.6% natural alcohol with a pH of 3.8. Perhaps the greatest Beringer Private Reserve since the 2007, 2005, 2002 and 2001, the 2010 offers up notes of lead pencil shavings, creme de cassis, subtle smoke, wet rocks and background oak. Full-bodied, rich and impressive, it can be drunk now or cellared for two decades.

Saturated ruby to the rim. Deep, brooding, highly complex aromas of blackberry, licorice and sweet oak show a slightly port-like quality. Full, plush and sweet, offering outstanding chewy depth to its superripe flavors of dark berries, bitter chocolate, licorice and mint.

The wine's huge baby fat is framed and energized by nicely integrated acidity. Boasts an impressive combination of fruit, flesh and underlying structure, finishing with wonderfully smooth tannins. A spectactular early showing for this wine, which should enjoy a glorious evolution in bottle.
