...a smoky, medium to full-bodied, honeyed Chardonnay with copious quantities of ripe, buttery tropical fruit. The sur lie aging, as well as the stirring of the lees gives this wine a Burgundian-like, smoky, hazelnut complexity... Robert Parker. A Chardonnay wine from California in USA. 1996 Beringer Chardonnay Private Reserve 750ml

...Tangy seductive aromas of black raspberry toast flowers and dark chocolate. Rich thick supple and harmonious; very strong extract. Very long finish features sweet tannins. This is superb for the vintage and more stylish than it appeared from barrel a year ago. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Complex aromas of dried currant anise herb and tar are rich and elegant on the palate with the tannins softening. Has excellent structure. The best of two bottles.--1996 California Cabernet retrospective. Drink now through 2009. Wine Spectator.

...One minute it s all cherries and smoke; the next it heaves up a great draught of currants cocoa and cedar. It s a big wine but deceptive; the tannins are airy and lilting there s charm and underneath enormous complexity. It s best left alone for a few more years but it s really very lovely now. Wine Enthusiast.


Winemaker's Notes:

Vinifying the fruit from each vineyard separately, Ed and his winemaking partner Laurie Hook used gentle pump-over techniques for optimal extraction, and then aged the wines in hand-selected, custom-toasted barrels of new French Nevers oak. The wines went through 100% malolactic fermentation for added complexity and softness, and were aged just over two years before Ed selected the blend - 48% Steinhauer Ranch, 23% St. Helena Home Ranch, 8% Marston Vineyard, 7% Bancroft Ranch, 6% Rancho del Oso, and 2% Chabot. Also added to the blend is a touch of Cabernet Franc (6%) from Bancroft and Steinhauer Ranches. Aromas of cassis, black cherry, cedar and dark chocolate transition to rich expressions of black fruit, vanilla and brown spices on the palate as ripe supple tannins linger throughout the extracted and long finish.
