This very special wine offers golden hue and features aromas of apricot nectar, crème brulee, vanilla and honey. Rich flavors of butterscotch, stone fruit and spice, with just a slight hint of cigar box, coat the mouth and linger for a long, luxurious finish. Whether paired with a cheese or rich dessert, Nightingale is a wonderful way to end a meal. - Roger Harrison, Nightingale Winemaker
Beringer’s Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted to reflect the Napa Valley appellation, but with stylistic differences from the Private Reserve – differences that highlight the range of terroir found in our Napa Valley vineyards. This wine is evocative of the rich terroir of our vineyards, but still immediately approachable and appealing.
Unabashedly rich and buttery, the 2010 Sbragia Chardonnay delivers heady scents of Meyer lemon, ripe fig and honeydew melon with a hint of vanilla cupcake. The concentrated, multi-layered flavors of citrus, peach, crème brûlée and toasted marshmallow are carried by an unctuous, full-bodied mid-palate and bolstered by a bracing acidity which keeps the wine lively and bright. This is a Chardonnay lover’s wine, bearing the unmistakable imprint of Beringer’s long time winemaker Ed Sbragia.
This Zinfandel has toned aromas of pomegranate and Bing cherry that lead to appealing flavors of plum, boysenberry, black licorice and sage. Lightly oaked with notes of mocha and black pepper, the wine's gutsy tannins provide a firm, structured mouthfeel carefully balanced with a zesty acidity that guides it to a clean yet lingering finish.
The 2012 Luminus has a striking purity of fruit, and showcases bright citrus characteristics and a beautiful minerality. It has a robust acidity, notes of lemon pith, almond extract, and a silky, elegant texture.
