Straw green in the glass. Nice smoky nose with toasted hazelnut. Wonderfully creamy and rich without being flabby and seeming overly ML. Really nice chard! - Tasted at the Beringer Rhine House 4/20/10
Another super delicious chardonnay from Beringer Pvt Reserve. Lush bright fruit in a pedestal of rich, toasty oak which is creamy and laced with nice sweet brown spice. Elegant mouthfeel and nicely lingering. - Tasted at Beringer Private Reserve Tasting at the Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas 4/5/10
As heard on Cellar Notes on WYPR.
golden straw color, vanilla, pear, apple and oak aroma, taste of vanilla and oak, finish is creamy. not one of my favorite chardonnays
In general, I agree with the tasting notes of the other winos; but I think there is a missing tag--and flavor--that none have mentioned: luxurious toasted, smokey oak. To me, that's a Beringer Private Reserve and Beringer Sbragia signature. Mmmmm.
External Reviews for Beringer Vineyards Cabernet Franc Howell Mountain
To impart highlights of vanilla, caramel and nutmeg, Ron barrel fermented and aged 70 percent of the Chardonnay in French and American oak barrels (20 percent new) for eight months. Fermenting the remainder in stainless steel maintained a bright, fresh fruit balance. The resulting wine has ripe pear and pineapple, and mango flavors highlighted by citrus, Granny Smith apple and hints of baking spices.
I love the way this wine satisfies on every level - from the bright citrus aromas that entice me in the beginning, and the ripe tropical fruit flavors in the mouth, to the lingering and rich finish it leaves behind. Unmistakably a California Chardonnay, I'm always enjoying it at home myself as it pairs perfectly with so many dishes - everything from a light grilled chicken to a rich risotto. - Winemaker

The Chardonnay offerings include Beringer's least expensive wine, the 1999 Chardonnay Founder's Estate, a blend of fruit primarily from the North Coast with a small Central Coast percentage. It offers abundant quantities of tropical fruits as well as subtle wood.
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.
Firm, intense and vibrant, featuring a complex, focused core of earthy currant, sage, black licorice and mineral. Full-bodied, yet sleek and trim on the finish, where the flavors are slow to unfold. Best from 2012 through 2022.
Deep ruby. Lively aromas of cassis, licorice and violet. Sweet and lush but juicy, with a strong chocolatey character and excellent underlying backbone. Very densely packed cabernet, with suaver tannins than the Steinhauer or Lampyridae bottlings. Finishes with lingering licorice and bitter chocolate notes. A very successful blend: 70% from Howell Mountain, 14% St. Helena, 8% Mt. Veeder and 8% Spring Mountain.
