Rich, vibrant, creamy and expressive, this well-balanced, luscious Chardonnay is classically Californian with aromas of citrus blossom, lemon curd, honeysuckle and crème brûlée, supported by flavors of tropical fruits, like pineapple, mango and tangerine. A delicate touch of well-integrated oak shows notes of brioche and apple pie spice, leading to a pleasing, mouth-watering lengthy finish.

The 2019 Chardonnay Private Reserve is certainly the richest and most opulent of the whites here, although it shows a fresher, less oaky, toasty character than older vintages (which I think is what they're looking for). Impressive stone fruits, white flowers, orange blossom, toasted almond, and a touch of minerality all define the bouquet, and this beauty builds nicely, offering full-bodied richness, a layered, opulent texture, terrific balance, and a great finish. It should keep nicely for 3-4 years, if not longer.

The 2019 Chardonnay Private Reserve, all from Gamble Ranch, balances the natural richness of this Oakville site with the fresher style favored by Beringer today. All of that yields a wonderfully expressive, creamy Chardonnay long on class and personality. Light tropical and pastry notes linger.

Elegantly fruity and spicy, with pear and apple tart flavors that are supported by lithe acidity, with minerally notes midpalate. The rich finish shows buttery and toasty accents. Drink now through 2024. 13,990 cases made.
