Beringer Quantum Red 2015
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Aromas of black fruits and preserves are accented by notes of herb, oak spice and dried fruits. Rich and expressive, round and full in the mouth with evident tannins that will lead to continued development as the wine ages. Savory and chewy upon entry, enjoyable now but will show well for 10-15 years at minimum.
The 2015 Quantum blends classic Bordeaux varieties with a dollop of Petite Sirah for added depth and overall intensity. Dark red cherry, plum, chocolate, new leather, smoke, black pepper and grilled herbs all flesh out in the glass. Broad, ample and quite resonant, the 2015 packs a serious punch. The radiant personality of 2015 softens some of the youthful edges and also gives the wine notable richness. There is plenty to like.
Features a tight, gritty mix of rich dark berry, loamy, gravelly earth, cedar and cigar box flavors, ending with a stronger herbal presence and drying tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petite Sirah, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Drink now through 2026. 11,600 cases made.
