Quick Overview

In order to create a blend that highlights the outstanding terroir of Beringer’s many Napa Valley vineyards, Laurie kept each vineyard lot separate from the moment the grapes were harvested, until final blending. In creating Quantum, Laurie was also excited to showcase an interesting mix of varietals with the foundation of Cabernet Sauvignon, the backbone of the Beringer portfolio. The majority of fruit comes from Howell Mountain along with a smaller portion from vineyards along the valley floor. The Merlot contributes round mouthfeel and soft tannins, Petite Sirah adds spice complexity, and Malbec adds silkiness and color to the final blend. The wines were aged in French oak (60% new barrels) for sixteen months, and then in bottle for six months.

Details

Quantum is the smallest unit of energy achievable in science. Each tiny particle – each singular quantum – holds unique potential to contribute to a larger being. When these units combine, each quantum contributes its specific essence, resulting in a system of great expression and complexity. Similarly in wine, Beringer recognizes that each grape varietal offers unique flavor and structure, and that each vineyard and block of vines contributes yet another expression of those varietals. In other words, each of these components acts as a quantum. When these varietals, or quanta combine, they produce something of far greater value. Something that bundles a source of life; something marked by layered complexity. Beringer farms a unique and irreplaceable collection of remarkable vineyard sites, and Chief Winemaker Laurie Hook has been working with wines from these vineyards for over 25 years. With the Quantum blend, Laurie highlights the individual properties of each varietal to create a wine with balance, structure and flavor.
