Beringer Pinot Noir Napa Valley Los Carneros Stanly Ranch 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A little tight on the nose, showing slightly unusual aromas that include a bit of green olive, low smoked herb notes and stemmy notes. Aromatically this is fairly savory and a little floral, with early black fruit then dried cranberry aromas. While a bit soft on entry, this turns bright with red cherry and cranberry fruit on the palate and just a little meaty edge. With some nuanced oak notes, this is broad in the mouth, with cherry fruit that darkens on the palate, offering nice length though the finish does turn a touch chewy with wood tannins. Perhaps a bit too meaty and savory for many folks, this does speak of its place. 88 points
