2014 Beringer Vogt Vineyard Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

Description

Description

Vogt vineyard is located on Howell Mountain. The 15-acre vineyard has volcanic-based soils that are restrictive and thus foster grapes of great intensity and structure. Vogt vineyard first appeared in the Private Reserve blend at the 2009 vintage. Vogt Cabernet shows a luscious fruit core from the outset, accentuated by ripe tannins. The 2015 Vogt was aged for 20 months in 92% new French oak barrels. Careful attention is paid to vineyard blocks, which are kept separate and vinified with a goal of extracting maximum flavor.

Wine Spectator

"Pure and rich, more light-footed than many, with an easy-to-approach mix of savory underbrush flavors that gain depth and complexity. Best from 2020 through 2032." - James Laube, Wine Spectator, October 2017

Vintage

The 2014 vintage offered an ideal growing season. Although California's drought brought another dry winter the growing season started with a warm, dry spring and relatively early bud break. Summer was mild and consistent with even, warm temperatures. Throughout the Napa Valley the season was even and tempered with no heat spikes or early rain. Warm days with plenty of sunshine and cool evenings allowed for excellent ripening, phenolic and flavor development in the grapes. Overall, vintage 2014 wines are of very high quality.

Laurie Hook - Former Winemaker

Laurie Hook, Beringer's Winemaker Emeritus, began her career in the winemaking program at University of California at Davis, which is noted for training some of the best winemakers around the world. Upon graduating in 1984, she traveled to Australia to work at a small winery. After returning to work a harvest in Sonoma, Laurie came to Beringer as an enologist in 1986, a job that allowed her to solidify the scientific side of her training. In 1997, she was named Assistant Winemaker to Beringer Winemaster Ed Sbragia, and in 2000 she was promoted to Winemaker for Beringer Vineyards. Laurie lead our winemaking team for 15 years before transitioning to winemaker Emeritus in 2015.
