Last night we went to the Hollywood Bowl. The the al fresco environment pretty much defeated the nose for me. However, the first sip was pay dirt. Very rich and fruit forward--citrus as much as anything--nice acid that made it a very good food wine. The Bowl's real raison d' etre is, of course, to give provide a terrific picnic environment. Last night we had tomato/goat cheese tart, chilled grilled salmon, broccoli slaw, bacon laced potato salad, assorted cheeses and this was our white wine. I look forward to my next bottle. $26.99 about a year ago. BTW, the concert was great--L.A. Phil conducted by the Dude with Zuckerman doing the Bruch G Minor concerto.

Quaffing wine - with fish, pork or a late Spring Saturday afternoon. This is certainly NOT a tradtional French thing and that's just fine - it's bright, a little acidic, balanced and refreshing. I plan to make three or four really big cork board one day!

A beautiful California style chardonnay--I do not think there are any better at this price. Some may not find this much oak attractive, but there is ample fruit to balance it and lend complexity on the nose and palate.

Ok so I have never really had much wines but I'm trying them out. Although this wine I didn't like, and we never finished the bottle. Maybe I'll try it again after I try more kinds.

The 2008 Chardonnay Private Reserve continues the success Beringer has enjoyed with this program. Notes of brioche, hazelnut, marmalade, honeyed tropical fruit, buttered citrus, and a gentle touch of smoke are found in this full-bodied, concentrated wine with impressive purity, depth, and length. It should drink well for 4-5 years.

Bright, pale yellow. Sexy aromas of musky pineapple, citrus rind and honey. Rich, broad and ripe, with nutty stone fruit, vanilla and hazelnut flavors complicated by a mineral component and a suggestion of exotic fruits.

Beringer's premier Chardonnay frequents our Top 100 (it was No. 1 in 1996) and as the 2006 shows, the Beringer winemaking team can produce an excellent wine even in a challenging year. Harvesting from three different vineyards and aging the lots separately in 77 percent new French oak, winemaker Laurie Hook blended a rich and complex white with layers of flavor, texture and finesse.

The 2004 Chardonnay Private Reserve is a surprisingly tightly knit Chardonnay by Beringer's standards, with notes of lemon oil, orange blossom, apple pie, and brioche in a full-bodied style with some tropical fruit but good underlying acidity and fleshy texture. It seems that Sbragia has cut back on the oak, and the wine shows more of a steely minerality than in the past. It is still a big, relatively extroverted Chardonnay to consume over the next 2-3 years.

Smoky, toasty oak aromas show riper, richer fruit flavors on the palate, with ripe fig, melon, apricot and spice nuances. The flavors turn delicate and complex on the finish. Drink now through 2010.

Rich and unctuous, with ripe, intense smoked pineapple, toasted cumin, hazelnut and nutmeg. Finishes with a solid dose of oak, but it holds together nicely. Drink now.
