Special Case Discount! - WS 92 WE 92 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - Delivers tiers of fig, smoke, honeydew and honeysuckle that are pure, intense and graceful. An excellent Beringer Private Reserve, a shade off the riper versions, but notably sleek, rich and layered. Drink now through 2019. 13,944 cases made.
According to Wine Advocate - The 2010 Chardonnay Private Reserve is a pretty, racy Chardonnay with excellent varietal character and a round, polished personality. Attractive hints of toastiness and vanillin linger on the finish. The Private Reserve was aged in French oak barrels (69% new), with full malolactic fermentation. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2013.
According to Wine Enthusiast - This bottling always strives to avoid a heavy hand and express more of a terroirdriven Chardonnay. This is bone dry, tart in mouthwatering acidity and complex in citrus, tropical fruit and herb flavors. It’s not an opulent attention getter, but instead prefers to seduce through subtlety and nuance. Rated 90+
