Beringer Founders’ Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 750mL
The Beringer Founders’ Estate Cabernet boasts flavors of black cherry, raspberry, vanilla and cinnamon spice. It has a round mouthfeel, supple tannins and a long,
lingering finish. A food-friendly wine, it pairs beautifully with a grilled rib-eye steak, roasted vegetables, or aged cheddar.
Beringer Founders’ Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from some of California’s most renowned and emerging appellations. More than half of the vineyards are in Lodi and the California Delta, which produce grapes of great intensity and flavor. The rest of the blend comes from coastal vineyards that are bathed in sunshine during the day and cooled by the marine layer at night, ensuring even and steady ripening of the grapes. The combination of these regions offers a wine that is complex and balanced.
The Beringer winemaking team worked closely with the viticulture department to determine when each vineyard reached full maturity. A small amount of Petite Sirah was added for complexity and depth of flavors. Half of the wine was aged on seasoned French and American oak for five months to add toastiness and hints of brown spice to the final blend.
