Natalie's Score: 93/100

Lovely lushness on the nose and palate. Gorgeously ripe cherries and strawberries with some satin plum pleasure mingled in. Medium- to full-bodied and smooth. Pair with roast chicken, swordfish or pork.

Pinot Noir food pairings: braised short ribs.

Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

An absolutely gorgeous Pinot Noir from the Napa Valley in California. Soft cherries, chocolate and a hint of mint. Beautifully balanced wine with nice acidity and a bit of toasty oak for a fabulous finish.
Cali icon Beringer delivers big-time with this affordably priced premium Pinot from the Napa Valley. Gobs of blackberry, red and black cherry, and hickory smoke aromas and flavours here. Perhaps even more captivating is the plush, velvety texture. A pleasure-packed Pinot that doesn't sacrifice poise. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, Nov. 2012

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
