Another in a line of excellent Beringer Private Reserve Chardonnays, though I think the 2007 has the clear edge over the 2008. The 2008 displays a complex nose of lime peel, sugar cookie, butterscotch, toast. In the mouth a strong mineral component is also present. Balanced, clean feel, though the wine does not seem as full and long as the 2007. - HK 2010-09-26
