The 2006 vintage was not kind to Beringer's Cabernets, and this esteemed bottling is no exception. It's tough and gritty, the kind of wine that may have a future but whose present is not particularly acceptable at this price. Extreme tannins lock it down. Tastes almost old-fashioned. But it does have a rich vein of blackberries and black currants, and who knows? It could come around after many years.
