Hey, pretty decent for the price. Served in a hotel lobby to passers by, i wasnt expecting much. Having said that it was a solid california chardonnay: super oaky, spicy, with some spice (from the oak). Not a lot of fruit, but what do you expect for the price?

At first I felt this chardonnay was over oaked. After some time to breathe in the glass and once the bottle was open a bit, it relaxed a bit. All in all, a very woody, vanilla nose. Nice bright tropical fruit like pineapple on the palate where the oak accents. 14.8%, so it's a nice dry chardonnay without being flabby in any one area.

From the highest vineyard in Napa. Big tannin on this wine. Feels warm on the palate, highly concentrated alcohol. Stewed fruit and cassis. Nice spice and cedar notes. The finish is dark berry tart. Bold tannin remains through finish. - Tasted at Beringer Private Reserve Tasting at the Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas 4/5/10

Past it's time unless cellared all along. Gold leaning to toffee in the glass. Roasted caramel flavors are all that remains. Drink now or make salad dressing.

The 2006 Chardonnay Private Reserve is not nearly as oaky and caramelized as previous examples of this cuvee. It is a much more elegantly-styled white with a nicely delineated nose of peach blossoms, honeysuckle, apple skins, and brioche. Full-bodied with beautiful purity as well as a long, harmonious finish, it can be enjoyed over the next 2-3 years.

Another offering that is more restrained than it used to be is the 2006 Chardonnay Sbragia Limited Release. It reveals an opulent tropical fruit character, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and hints of hazelnut, brioche, and honeysuckle as well as abundant glycerin and length. Good acidity provides balance and overall zest. Drink it over the next 3andndash;4 years.


External Review

Good pale, bright yellow. Complex aromas of apricot, pineapple, honey, hazelnut, toasted bread and smoky oak. Silky, opulent and open-knit, offering very good volume but also shape and lift. The longest of these chardonnays. The alcohol here is 15.3%, and the texture is in fact quite glyceral. This is a andldquo;vineyard and barrel selection,andrdquo; according to winemaker Laurie Hook.

A real mouthful of delicious Chardonnay, with a range of flavors stretching from ripe pear, fig and citrus to pretty smoky oak, hazelnut and caramel. Finishes with a pure gush of rich earth and Chardonnay flavors, turning elegant and graceful. Drink now through 2006.

Wine Tasting NotesThe Beringer Founders Estate Chardonnay is an expression of California in a bottle. In a state so diverse, from the rolling farmlands of the north to the sunny beaches of the south, there are layers of character and pockets of personality all captured under a sunny sky. The wines fresh stone fruit and tropical flavors are like the warm sunshine, under which lies the caramel apple, nutmeg, and citrus nuances that bring forward the wines personality.


External Review

Bright yellow gold. Moderately full-bodied. Full acidity. Moderately extracted. Moderately oaked. Yeast, yellow apples, brown spice. Rich butter and spice aromas follow through on the palate. Very spicy and direct with a big rush of flavors upfront that tapers through the finish. Extravagant yeasty qualities are a standout.


External Review

Aromas of smoked meat, pear and citrus skin, plus a leesy complexity. Plump, deep, spicy and very rich, with an enticing sweetness. This has excellent depth of flavor for a Chardonnay from this vintage.
