Beringer Vineyards Pinot Noir Napa Valley 2011

Member Review by gentlemanjack45:

This wine was shocking, tasted like soda pop, the wine had one dimention, soda pop fruitiness. None of the traditional characteristics of Pinot Noir, four of us tasted the wine with 3 other Pinot Noirs, none of us fined our glass.

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.

  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

Wine Tasting NotesThe 2005 Napa Valley Pinot Noir has a dark ruby-garnet color with aromas of cherry, strawberry, sweet mandarin orange, rose, allspice, and a touch of minerality. With a bright backbone and supple tannins, this wine has a lush fruit mouth of sweet red cherries and strawberries.

Pinot Noir has exploded in popularity over the last few years, and it's easy to see why. Mouth-filling cherry and raspberry fruit rounds out this soft, juicy wine.

Generous ripe plum and blueberry flavors are supple and balanced, with a nice spicy cola edge and good length. Drink now.
