Editorial Reviews for Beringer Chardonnay California Founder's Estate
Almond nougat and dried orange peel aromas greet the nose followed by rich, smoky honeycomb notes and the spice of toasty oak. There’s a pop of tangerine on entry and this is downright flannelly on the palate, showing tremendous richness and creamy, honeyed pineapple and guava flavors on the short finish. A bit of a powerhouse, but this is more dense than huge. A bit soft for me, nonetheless well made in its style. 91 points
Stony on the nose, with a hint of dry stem notes topped with cider apple and pear peel aromas. Linear on the palate, though this does shows some richness in the mouth with early lemon flavors followed by a nice touch of stony astringency, as well with a hint of peach. This is moderately big with a fruit-driven finish that shows off lovely lemon and almost under-ripe pineapple. Dry and deep, this shows lovely richness wrapped around a fine acidic spine. 88 points

The Beringer Founders' Estate Chardonnay is the perfect combination of pear, apple and ripe tropical fruit flavors, with a hint of citrus and a classically round mouthfeel.

Ripe, with fine intensity to the green pear, vanilla and eucalyptus flavors. Bright lemon-lime tones linger on the tart, slightly cedary finish.
Jacob and Frederick Beringer founded Beringer Vineyards in the year 1870 in the heart of the Napa Valley. The winery houses it's wines in historic tunnels, hand chiseled over many years.
Flavors of ripe citrus and apple are accented by aromas of toffee, tangerines and orange blossom. The mouth-coating, round texture highlights the rich flavors, all balanced by bright, refreshing notes that linger into the finish.
Cabernet Sauvignon Napa exhibits more cassis, earth, and tobacco characteristics than the Knight's Valley as well as a deeper style, good purity and richness, and medium to full body. Again, the overa
