    “Lots of rich black-cherry and blackcurrant aromas with milk chocolate, wet leaves and sandalwood. It’s full-bodied with firm, velvety tannins. Rich and broad with a warm finish. ” - James Suckling, January 2021

    “Another small, single vineyard release, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Chabot Vineyard comes from St. Helena and is 100% varietal that was aged in 72% new French oak. It has a complex, nuanced nose of red and black fruits, black tea, lavender, and tobacco. This carries to a medium to full-bodied, elegant Cabernet with a solid spine of acidity, firm tannins, and outstanding length. It’s beautifully done, but it’s going to benefit from 3-5 years of bottle age and should evolve gracefully for 10-15 years or more.” - Jeb Dunnuck, January 28, 2021

    “The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Chabot Vineyard is striking. Black fruit, lavender, licorice, spice, chocolate, melted road tar and licorice build in a powerful, virile wine endowed with tremendous structure, power and concentration. At times, the Chabot can be deceiving, such is its finesse, but there is quite a bit of depth here. As Beringer fans know, this is a very special site, and one of the original vineyards used for the flagship Private Reserve Cabernet.” - Antonio Galloni, March 2021

Vintage

An exceptional vintage, the 2018 season started with a cool spring that delayed flowering but fruit set was fine and even. With few exceptions, Summer was moderate, sunny and dry without major heat spikes. The fine weather continued on through the Fall, allowing Cabernet Sauvignon to hang longer on the vine to develop flavors and achieve phenolic ripeness without additional sugar accumulation, resulting in beautiful structure, intense color, concentration of fruit and excellent balance in the wines.

Vineyard

Chabot Vineyard lies east of the Silverado Trail, just north of the road that leads up Howell Mountain to Bancroft Ranch and Steinhauer Ranch. The chunks of shiny obsidian heavily strewn through its soil reflect the locale, known as “Glass Mountain.” An underlying layer of pumice and bedrock ensures excellent drainage. The inky, highly structured, deeply flavored Cabernet from this vineyard was the first that Beringer Vineyards elected to bottle as a Private Reserve, in 1977, and it continues to be a frequent component of contemporary vintages of Private Reserve
