Always looking for some new wines to review, and always dying to try out the other labels of wines put out by the same producers, I saw and picked up this Beringer, having felt great satisfaction with the Napa Valley Chardonnay.

This wine has a nice taste, albeit I was honestly look for something a little more based on the new label. The wine itself has a lot of minerality, bordering on, as well as including stone (this is what cracks me up that we would actually know what a stone tastes like; this says a lot to childhood), and of course it has citrus flavors, but not too much grapefruit... more like grapefruit blended with pineapple in almost equal parts.

If you like sauvignon blanc, but could go for something that's not too alive, but has a more reserved and subtle approach, then this one fits the bill.
