Editorial Reviews for Beringer Chardonnay California Founder's Estate
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
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

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.
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. This Chardonnay will perfectly compliment a grilled chicken or fish, or stand up to a rich risotto with its ripe, clean flavors and lingering finish. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **

Ripe, with fine intensity to the green pear, vanilla and eucalyptus flavors. Bright lemon-lime tones linger on the tart, slightly cedary finish.
Made from rich, ripe Napa Valley Chardonnay, this wine has complex aromas and flavors of tropical fruit, apple, citrus, butter and spice and a dense, rich texture
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
