Beringer, not a name associated by most average drinkers with quality, but Beringer has many lines of wine, and this one is a step above the Napa Valley Chardonnay, which I love. However, this one disappointed me as this wine is essentially woody and very smoky, which while it raises the complexity to the wine, it overpowers all but the most analytical palates.

The finish is long and deep, but the ability to get enough fruit flavors is really disheartening.

We believe in finding something that you like the taste of, outside of the basic brands that you have been force-fed over the years through a combination of ethnically targeted advertising, and what people in your family have historically been drinking.
