Dark cherry, espresso, and leather aromas are accented by a hint of sage, vanilla and savory brown spices…a fleshy, distinctive wine with silken tannins.
Wine Spectator: Offers an assertive mix of flavors, with dried currant, plum, blackberry, dill, cedar and mocha-laced oak. This is well-structured, firming nicely on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot. A new Bordeaux-style blend from Beringer. Drink now through 2022. 6,000 cases made.
Robert Parker: The Cabernet Sauvignon-based 2010 Red Blend Quantum, here in its first vintage, flows across the palate with attractive layers of deep, resonant fruit. Dark raspberry jam, orange rind, cloves, violets and cinnamon are all woven together gracefully. This open, approachable Bordeaux-style blend should drink well pretty much right out of the gate. Quantum is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Petite Sirah. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

When tiny quantum units combine, they
create systems of immense value and
complexity. Similarly, when grape
varietals combine, each lends its unique
flavor and structure, to create wines with
great depth and expression. Beringer
farms a collection of remarkable
vineyard sites, and Chief Winemaker
Laurie Hook has been crafting wines
from these vineyards for over 25 years.
Beringer’s Quantum embodies the
utmost in master blending, as Laurie
highlights varietals from Beringer’s
remarkable range of vineyards.
Beringer Vineyards – The Beginning
Our history dates back to the year 1868, when Jacob Beringer, enticed by the splendid opportunities of the new world, sailed from his home in Mainz, Germany to New York. However, New York did not appeal to Jacob and after hearing that the warm and Mediterranean plains of California were quite similar to the vineyards back home, he soon made his way to the Napa Valley. It was here that Jacob Beringer, along with his brother, Frederick Beringer, purchased land for the first Beringer Vineyard in 1875.
Beringer Vineyards – Today
Beringer Vineyards holds the distinction of being the oldest continuously operating winery in the Napa Valley. It is also one of the very few wineries that survived the draconian prohibition of 1922, which lasted over a decade. The estate is also in the National Register for Historic Places as a historic district, a status it has held since 2001. With its perfect blend of modern technology and age old traditions, Beringer Vineyards still produces memorable wines that continue to bring recognition to the company and all of Napa Valley.
