clear pale lemon color, sweet and fruity on the palate
This is the CSI:Miami of California Chardonnays
Wonderful bright tropical fruit on this chardonnay. Dominant banana and other tropical flavors, bright acidity that dances around on your palate. Lively and well balanced. Very tasty.
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?
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.
Nose of banana and apricot. Some very nice oak laced through a rich, buttery, wonderful chardonnay. - Tasted at Hostile Grape 10/8/09
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
External Reviews for Beringer Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain Steinhauer Ranch
Bright tropical fruit and citrus aromas lead to mouth-filling flavors of apples and pears. Malolactic fermentation and barrel aging contribute to a soft creaminess and long finish that complements grilled fish and linguine with garlic-basil pesto.
Displays rich citrus aromas with luscious apple and pear flavors that linger in a delicate and soft finish.
Beringer Vineyards holds the distinction of being the oldest continuously operating winery in the Napa Valley. It is also one of the very few wineries that survived the draconian prohibition of 1922, which lasted over a decade. The estate is also in the National Register for Historic Places as a historic district, a status it has held since 2001.
Aromas of cherry, anise and cocoa are followed by abundant flavors of dark cherry and a hint of spice. The soft, mouth-coating tannins are highlighted by the blend's juicy fruit core. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **
Bright yellow. Grape and pineapple fruit aromas are enlivened by floral lift and solid minerality. Broad, dense, ripe and sweet, with a chewy, saline quality and some smoky oak notes contributing to this wine's impressively tactile mouth feel. Finishes long, ripe and sweet, with stone and citrus fruit flavors and solid underlying structure.
Another great bargain is the 2006 Chardonnay Napa. Crisp and lean, with copious amounts of lemon oil, guava, and nectarine aromas, it is a medium-weight, dry, refreshing white to enjoy over the next 1-3 years.
Another remarkable bargain is the 45,000-case cuvée of 2007 Chardonnay Napa. It exhibits crisp notes of pineapples and oranges, zesty acidity, little oak, and a fresh, medium-bodied finish. Readers looking for more smoke and roasted nut characteristics in a bigger, fuller-bodied style should seek out the 2007 Chardonnay Private Reserve and 2007 Chardonnay Sbragia Limited Release.
91 points Wine Spectator: A lot of Cabernet at this price. Combines ripe, plump, plum, black cherry and black berry flavors in a rich, smooth, polished style, full bodied and firming nicely on the finish, where the tannins have a minerally edge. Drink now through 2021. (Dec 2011) 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot.
