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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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 **

Pretty, with ripe pear, cantaloupe and honeydew melon flavors and a juicy edge of lime. Drink now.

Displays rich citrus aromas with luscious apple and pear flavors that linger in a delicate and soft finish.

Pale, bright yellow. Deeply pitched but bright aromas of ripe peach and pear. Smooth and ripe, with enticing peach and pear fruit flavors complicated by lees, spices and butterscotch. Finishes with a slightly phenolic quality. Good honest chardonnay, and a solid value.

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

Winemaker's Notes:

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.
