The Top 10 Wines of 1990


Posted: January 17, 2002

Wine of the Year 1990

Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Private Reserve 1986

Deliciously rich and concentrated, the layers of herb, mint, cherry and plum flavors are tightly wound together and framed by toasty oak and firm tannins. Elegant and stylish, this beautifully proportioned wine echoes fruit and oak. Drink now to 2001.
