All the press agrees, this is an amazing wine...
2009 Beringer Chardonnay Private Reserve...$29.99
"The 2009 Chardonnay Private Reserve, which comes primarily from Napa’s Gamble Ranch site, is a bigger, richer, more nutty-styled Chardonnay revealing tropical fruit, butter, brioche and hazelnut characteristics. They backed off the oak in this cuvee, which results in more fruit, interest and personality."
Rated 93/100 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
"A very classy wine that combines rich, layered, complex fruit with a sense of delicacy and finesse. Full-bodied, but not heavy, offering detailed fig, melon, apple and spice. What's most impressive is the texture and length, with the flavors continuing to develop. Drink now through 2015. 12,500 cases made. –JL"
Rated 93/100 The Wine Spectator
"(14.9% alcohol; 95% from Gamble Ranch fruit; aged in 76% new oak for nine months): Bright, pale, green-tinged yellow. Precise aromas of stone fruits and wild herbs lifted by floral and rocky naunces. Broad, rich and nicely dry, with a hint of leesy complexity to the stone fruit flavors. Captivating minerality gives finesse to this attractive, plump wine. 91 points"
