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

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.

    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.

    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.

    Serve this clean and simple Chardonnay as an apèritif, chilled to focus the mild, buttery oak and green, lemony fruit flavors.

    Laurie Hook blended this wine from a collection of seven vineyards, the majority coming from Howell Mountain’s Bancroft Ranch and Steinhauer sites (70 percent). The power and dark extract of that mountain fruit are plumped up by juicier notes of plums and fat blackberries, all of it wrapped in the char of oak. A potent vintage of Private Reserve, this is built to age ten years or more.

    Production: 9,008 cases; Alcohol: 14.6%; Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon; Harvest Dates: September 10 to October 24. The 2007 Private Reserve is composed of 34% Bancroft Ranch, 33% Steinhauer Ranch, 8% Chabot Vineyard, 8% Lampyridae, and the remainder from St. Helena Home Vineyard, Marston Ranch and Rancho del Oso fruit. A mild spring and summer with only a handful of heat spikes was followed by beautiful weather in September and October. One of the finest Private Reserves made over the last two decades, this phenomenal wine is obviously still an infant in terms of development, but it exhibits a dense purple color as well as an extraordinary nose of blackberries, white chocolate, licorice, tobacco leaf, smoky barbecue, charcoal and a burning ember-like note reminiscent of a Graves from Bordeaux. A dense, luscious, full-bodied, opulent style, with sweet tannin, this locked and loaded, intense, full throttle Private Reserve should be accessible in 5–6 years and last for 25–30.

    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.
