This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

Two Beringers

Dinner at St. George.

2007 Beringer Chardonnay Sbragia Limited Release - I have always preferred this bottling over Beringer's Chardonnay Private Reserve, and it was interesting to see what the newer vintages are like. Very buttery, very sweet and ripe on the nose, with floral, fruity and sugar cane notes. High residual sugar and very sweet on the palate. I definitely felt every bit of that 15.1% alcohol level, as the wine was very "hot" and had a spicy finish.

1988 Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve - the nose was very ripe and sweet. with prunes, Asian spices and smoked game meats. Very silky and smooth on the tongue. After a while a little brett came out. Not bad for a wine from a weak vintage and supposedly 10 years past its prime...
