92 Points
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."

92 Points
The Wine Advocate
"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."


Winemaker's Notes

The 2010 Quantum is full of dark cherry, espresso, tobacco, and leather aromas. Notes of ripe plum, vanilla, and boysenberry jam are accented by a hint of sage and savory brown spices. It is a fleshy, distinctive wine with silken tannins and a lush, rounded profile.

Blend: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petite Sirah, 3% Petit Verdot

Alcohol by Volume: 14.5%
