Beringer Private Reserve Chardonnay 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
This is a really solid white with so much structure and depth, as well as a border-less, encompassing palate. Full-bodied and polished with lots of length. Shows complex flavors, from cooked apples and lemons to stones and hints of flowers. Still tight. Needs time to come together. Drink after 2021.
The classic Napa release from this estate, the 2018 Chardonnay Private Reserve has lots of beautiful golden apple, caramelized citrus, toasted nut, and hints of acacia flowers. With a rich, textured style, it still stays beautifully fresh, balanced, and layered. It's a brilliant effort.
Unctuous, with concentrated baked apple, pear tart and coconut cream flavors that are well-spiced. Vibrant pastry accents show midpalate, lingering into a rich, contoured and buttery finish. Drink now through 2023. 15,619 cases made.
