Wine Advocate 97 points - Production: 9,700 cases; Alcohol: 14.5%; Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon; Harvest Dates: October 12 to November 17. Composed of 31% Bancroft Ranch, 25% St. Helena Home Vineyard, 17% Steinhauer Ranch, 8% Rancho del Oso, and smaller amounts from Marston Ranch, Chabot Vineyard and Lampyridae, the 2005 is one of my all-time favorite Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserves. A late, long harvest followed a cold summer, late flowering and no heat until September and October. However, the end of the growing season was nearly perfect, hence the late harvest. Winemakers Ed Sbragia and Laurie Hook had the patience to wait for full phenolic maturity, which is evident in this great Private Reserve. Still a baby in terms of development, it is reminiscent of a first or second-growth Pauillac. Celestial notes of black currants, camphor, graphite, cocoa, white chocolate and spice box are all present in this full-bodied, extravagantly rich, multidimensional Cabernet. Although still primary, it is very classic with terrific purity, texture and length. It will need another decade to hit full maturity, but should easily last 15-20 years thereafter.  (Jun 2011)

Wine Spectator 93 points - Offers richness, concentration and depth while remaining elegant and supple, focusing on the ripe, spicy currant, mineral, herb and sage notes. Ends with a measure of finesse and polish, with the right mix of tannins. Drink now through 2016. 9,709 cases made. –JL (Oct 15 2008)
