"When I was in northern California the week before Thanksgiving, the rumors that were swirling about the impending sale of Beringer by its international corporate owner, Nestle, to an investment consortium proved true when the sale was announced. Let's hope the new owners maintain the status quo, as Beringer has had an exceptional run of highly successful wines since the mid-eighties. Considering the diversity of wines produced, I would be hard pressed to single out another winery that has enjoyed as much success as Beringer has over the last decade. With the exception of a chunky, overly-oaked Pinot Noir, it is impossible to find anything less than top-flight at Beringer, with many of the firm's wines undeniably special. The 1992 Nightingale is Beringer's Sauternes look-alike. A blend of 50% botrytised Semillon and 50% Sauvignon Blanc (barrel-fermented and aged in 100% new oak), it is a superb, beautifully pure wine designed to compete with Bordeaux's sweetest wines. It should last for 10-15 years. Beringer has once again proven that they are one of the qualitative leaders in California as they continue to turn out reference point wines - not only for California, but the world." - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #102 (Dec 1995)
