Beringer Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc California Stone Cellars 2006

External Review by NapaCabs.com:

Winery Tasting Notes - This very special late-harvest dessert wine offers a golden hue and features aromas of apricot preserve, cr me brule and honey. Rich flavors of butterscotch, stone fruit and spice coat the mouth and linger for a long, luxurious finish. Whether paired with a cheese course or rich dessert, Nightingale is a wonderful way to end a meal. Winemaster Roger Harrison The S millon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes for this wine were grown in Beringer's Bale Lane Vineyard in the northern end of Napa Valley. Bale Lane enjoys the warm, sunny climate that vineyard manager Jim Frisinger believes is ideal for achieving round, full fruit flavors in both of these grape varietals. Vertical trellising systems have been implemented as an additional means of ensuring that the vines receive optimal sun and air exposure.

  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
