Editorial Reviews for Beringer Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain Steinhauer Ranch
Vanilla cream with toasted nut meat and floral nuances top mocha-inflected, huge, creamy blueberry and black cherry fruit on the imposing, upright and intense fruit-driven nose. There’s plenty of lightly toasty, smoky oak nuance as well, but they sit in the background. This shows impressive pinpoint focus on the palate and is very smooth and opulent without being weighty. There’s a great firmness to this without any tannins poking out of the deep, slightly earth-tinged, creamy dark fruit that shows hints of coffee and tobacco on the palate. The tannins do pop out of the creamy fruit on the back end, along with spice and a little hint of tartness, revealing the firmness of the acid. This is just a seductive wine with super fine depth and exceptional polish. 94 points

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.
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.
Nose of banana and apricot. Some very nice oak laced through a rich, buttery, wonderful chardonnay. - Tasted at Hostile Grape 10/8/09

Displays rich citrus aromas with luscious apple and pear flavors that linger in a delicate and soft finish.
Your basic inexpensive California Chard: fruity, creamy and light, with pleasant peach, pineapple and apricot flavors finished with a touch of spicy oak.
Smooth and creamy, with enough acidity to prop up the citrus, ripe pear, nutmeg and spicy nuances, finishing with a pretty floral edge. Drink now.
Fragrant, with floral, spice and nectarine notes that are crisp and delicate, ending with a snappy apple aftertaste. Drink now.
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.
Serve this clean and simple Chardonnay as an apegrave;ritif, chilled to focus the mild, buttery oak and green, lemony fruit flavors.
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.
