About Beringer Vineyards
Founded in 1876, Beringer is the oldest continuously operating vineyard in Napa Valley. Head winemaker Laurie Hook directs operations at 14 different vineyards which produce almost as many varieties of wine. Decadently rich Cabernet Sauvignons, lush Merlots and rich, exotic Chardonnays are the standout wines at Beringer.

(essentially a 60/40 blend of semillon and sauvignon blanc, with homeopathic doses of chardonnay and viognier; this wine was previously called Alluvium Blanc): Light yellow. Hint of resiny oak on the high-toned nose. Supple and round on the palate, with lively acidity and a hint of minerality perking up the hazelnut flavor. Still a bit youthfully raw on the back end: I'd wait 6 to 12 months before serving this.
