Dark fruit accented with lightly stemmy olive notes greets the nose, followed by a smoky top note over a nice base note of sweet bramble and blackberry fruit with slightly leathery accents. This is silky with slightly chalky tannins that offer nice cut on the palate. There’s a lot of fruit here, pretty purplish fruit with nice cranberry edges that leads to deep blackcurrant and blackberry flavors that are nicely bright on the palate and framed with spice and mocha accents. With time, this turns fairly tannic, very clean and fresh, with a moderately long finish that turns a touch pasty on the finale with just a little wood tannins sticking out. Medium full-bodied and smooth yet faceted, this is a safe bet to please a lot of people. 90 points

Kind of a "yeasty"/herbal nose. Maybe, even, some mint. Quite straightforward on the front of the palate. Medium-to-full bodied. Cassis/blueberry fruit. Tannins kind of sneak up on you--at first you don't notice them. Then, oh yeah, there they are. I like the tannin, and while I don't think this will age to a great wine, it could be laid down for a couple years. US$18.99 at Costco in Chino Hills

Decent middle of the road chardonnary. Not a lot of anything in particular with this one, subtle oak, some good light citrus, but nothing to brag about.

This is a very smooth berry flavor Cabernet with flavors of vanilla, caramel and a bit of spice. Tannins are medium and the finish is wonderful.

Expressive nose of currant, cassis and some green notes along with hints of plum and pepper. Aromas also of grilled herbs, asphalt and savory notes. Energetic and vibrant on the palate with a nice, rich feel. Elegant structure with nice balance. Good integration of wood with the currant, cassis and vanilla flavors. Light hint of eucalyptus. Nice! 92 pts. 4/20/13

The 2008 Knights Valley Cabernet is a wine with some bite to it. Medium to slightly heavier in structure. Very fruit forward on the nose....Almost reminds me of the bouquet of an Oberon 2005 Merlot. Very nice! Cheers!

The Beringer Founders' Estate Cabernet Sauvignon bursts with lush black fruit and intense cassis flavors that compliment the baking spice and vanilla aromas. Structured tannins and a long finish make this unmistakably a California Cabernet that can be enjoyed immediately. Pair this wine with anything from an elegant duck dish to hearty barbeque pork ribs - delicious. - Winery

Pure and clean, offering excellent fruit complexity, with wild berry, blueberry, spice and cedar flavors, firm tannins and good length. Drink now through 2018. -JL Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2010 Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley 750ml

Pale bright yellow. Pure aromas of musky nectarine, grapefruit and pineapple. Boasts good thickness and richness for a chardonnay in this price range; the dominant characteristic is lively stone fruit flavors. Finishes with good length. Only 35% of this wine went through malolactic fermentation, and the wine got only 25% new oak aging.

The Beringer Founders' Estate Chardonnay is the perfect combination of pear, apple and ripe tropical fruit flavors, with a hint of citrus and a classically round mouthfeel. This Chardonnay will perfectly compliment a grilled chicken or fish, or stand up to a rich risotto with its ripe, clean flavors and lingering finish. - Winery

To impart highlights of vanilla, caramel and nutmeg, Ron barrel fermented and aged 70 percent of the Chardonnay in French and American oak barrels (20 percent new) for eight months. Fermenting the remainder in stainless steel maintained a bright, fresh fruit balance. The resulting wine has ripe pear and pineapple, and mango flavors highlighted by citrus, Granny Smith apple and hints of baking spices.

One of the best buys in the Chardonnay marketplace remains Beringerrsquo;s 2009 Chardonnay Napa. In fact, I would rank it right up there with Kendall-Jacksonrsquo;s 2009 Vintnerrsquo;s Reserve. Beringerrsquo;s offering shows elegant white peach and honeysuckle notes in a crisp, medium-bodied style. What is surprising is how much flavor and intensity they have been able to build into this wine, which probably can be found discounted to $12 a bottle.

Pale bright yellow. Peach and flowers on the nose. Round and peachy, with sound acidity and a refreshing hint of licorice. Slightly phenolic, edgy finish. Sixty percent of this wine went through malolactic fermentation.

Winemaker's Notes:

Not yet reviewed; 2009 vintage rated 91 points by 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.
