Tasting Notes and Description
Tasting Notes For Beringer Quantum Napa Valley Red Blend 2014
In order to create a blend that highlights the outstanding terroir of Beringer’s many Napa Valley vineyards, our winemaking team kept each vineyard lot separate from the moment the grapes were harvested, until final blending. In creating Quantum, the team was also excited to showcase an interesting mix of varietals with the foundation of Cabernet Sauvignon, the backbone of the Beringer portfolio. The majority of fruit comes from Howell Mountain along with a smaller portion from vineyards along the valley floor. The Merlot contributes round mouthfeel and soft tannins, Petite Sirah adds spice complexity, and Malbec adds silkiness and color to the final blend. The wines were aged in French oak (60% new barrels) for sixteen months, and then in bottle for six months.
The 2014 Quantum offers aromatic notes of dark cherry, espresso, tobacco, and leather. Notes of ripe plum, vanilla, and boysenberry jam are accented by subtle brown spice. It is a rich, fleshy wine with silken tannins and a lush, rounded profile.
