Greg Hughes rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Crystallizing Napa style, this wine is huge, voluptuous, and rich. Tons of oak (lots of French) and a full malolactic hit of creaminess on the midpalate.
Golden colouration already. Giving over to oxidative, golden yellow. Glass-coating and almost 15% alcohol.
Aromas of stone fruit, pineapple, roasted nuts, vanilla, butter, and smoke. Lots of purity to the aromas and flavours. This wine was meticulously manGed during the barrel elevage.
The mouthfeel is glossy and imminently drinkable in spite of the booziness. Lemon curd, pineapple, vanilla, and more toastiness on the finish.
This wine is high quality, decent value, and may improve in the cellar. For those who like it bog before alk-else. Ta-dah! Pair it with bacon wrapped scallops.
Jane Staples rated this wine as 96/100 with the following review:

An excellent growing season produced this Napa Chard that celebrates the skill of winemaker Mark Beringer and showcases the Napa region. Tropical fruit, peach, citrus and smoke on the nose of this rich, layered Chard. The luscious palate continues these exquisitely blended elements in a silky-satiny texture and lingers through to the elegant finish.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
