Wine Advocate, 93 Points 

"Although not labeled as such, Beringer's Private Reserve Chardonnay has been sourced for decades from the Gamble Ranch in Oakville. Planted around 1976 to Clone 4, the grapes are picked ripe and barrel fermented at relatively warm temperatures to build mouthfeel. The 2020 Chardonnay Private Reserve (along with all the other white varieties) was picked prior to any risk of smoke taint. Marked by scents of mango, guava and pineapple, it doesn't come across as that oaky, despite being barrel fermented and aged in approximately 80% new French oak. It's full-bodied and slightly buttery, with an appealing custardy richness and a long finish.

Wine Spectator, 92 Points 

"Peach, apricot and mango flavors are juicy and fleshy at the core of this white, with honeyed overtones. Salted butter, spice and toasted pastry notes emerge on the finish, as does a touch of dried ginger. Drink now.

Wine Enthusiast, 92 Points 

"Vivid apple and subtle toasted oak aromas lead to a rich palate of butter, baked apples, almonds and vanilla on a viscous, soothing texture and full body. This luxurious wine is balanced toward the soft, low-acid end of the spectrum." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"Layered, rich, creamy, and complex, this luscious Chardonnay is classically Californian with expressive aromas of citrus blossom, lemon curd, and white star jasmine, supported by more tropical ripe flavors of juicy white nectarine, yellow peach, and grilled pineapple. The well-integrated oak shows as notes of toasted brioche, Madagascar vanilla, and ginger spice all atop natural freshness and minerality."
