Beringer Vineyards Nightingale Private Reserve 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Honey-soaked apricots, hazelnuts and spicy oak are just some of the seductive aromas and flavors in the Nightingale. Its golden hue and lush mouthfeel give way to rich flavors of stone fruit and artisanal honey. Whether paired with a cheese course or rich dessert, Nightingale is a special and unique way to end a meal.

  It is impossible to take Beringer’s long history lightly. With their 215 acre plot of land purchased in 1875 and the winery founded in 1876, Jacob and Frederick Beringer’s winery is the oldest continually operating winery in Napa Valley. In 2001, it was named a historic district in the National Register for Historic Places. Current winemaker Laurie Hook and winemaster Ed Sbragia continue to draw from over a dozen vineyards to create world-class wines from varying soil compositions and climates. The winery managed to survive, and even thrive, during Prohibition by selling sacramental wines with a federal license. Since the wine was being made for religious purposes, it was legal! A unique aspect of Beringer is the tunnel system that was carved into the side of Spring Mountain around 1880. Chinese immigrant workers, the same workers that helped build the Trans-Continental Railroad, spent years hand-chiseling the 1,200 feet of tunnels. To this day, the tunnels act as a natural insulator, keeping the temperature between 58 and 60 degrees year-round, ideal for storing wine. Read less

70% semillon and 30% sauvignon blanc, all botryised. Deep orange-gold color. Faint aromas of ripe dried apricot, orange, honey, vanilla, and baking spice feature on the nose. Lush on the palate, the weighty, slightly viscous mouthfeel drives an admir... Cory Gowan. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2006 Beringer Nightingale 375ml
