Four wines were served at this virtual wine tasting (see photos). Opinions varied as to the favorite wine, but all wines received first place votes. My personal favorite was the 2015 Beringer Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Beringer is an iconic Napa producer and one of the oldest wineries in Napa, founded by Frederick and Jacob Beringer in 1875. Their tagline is “California’s Oldest Continually Operating Winery.” Krug is older, but had a hiatus during Prohibition. Beringer survived (and operated continuously) by making sacrificial wine for religious purposes during the Prohibition years. Someone pulled out an issue of Wine Spectator magazine, which rated this wine at 90 points. If you can find it, try the 2015 Beringer Napa Valley Cabernet.
Special thanks to Bree and Megan for being tonight’s Wine Ninjas.
