Beringer Quantum Red 2015
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
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.
Composed mainly of Cabernet Sauvignon (69%) with smaller portions of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot and Malbec, the 2015 Red Blend Quantum sports a deep garnet-purple color and nose of baked plums, blackberry preserves and dried mulberries with hints of fertile loam, dried Mediterranean herbs, cedar and Marmite toast. Full-bodied, rich and packed with expressive blackberry preserves and savory flavors, it has a chewy backbone and the earthiness lingers well into the finish.
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.
