"From the Martinez Vineyard, high on the edge of Pritchard Hill and overlooking the Napa Valley, comes this wine that is near and dear to our hearts. Loaded with dark fruit, plum, cassis and cocoa, intensified by beautiful floral aromas, exotic spice and a finish that seamlessly goes on and on, this wine is powerful and gorgeous, and just like the views from this stellar vineyard, the flavors go on forever." —winemaker
Blend: 75% Cabernet Franc, 12.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12.5% Petit Verdot
"Dark purple with youthful hues on release, the nose is a compelling mix of dark stone fruits, coffee and blackberries. The 2010 is supremely focused yet rich and rewarding on the palate. The flavours are intense yet restrained, showing brooding dark fruit characters, with cracked pepper hints, some minerality and great complexity. The astounding purity of expression and multilayered structure will allow this wine to mature with elegance for decades to come." —winemaker
"The late Myron Nightingale was winemaker at Beringer Vineyards from 1971 to 1984. Myron and his wife, Alice, were great innovators who collaborated to create the first botrytized dessert wine in California. Today, it bears their name. Myron used to joke that making great wine was simple, but simply put, Myron was a great winemaker. Today, Roger Harrison, Nightingale winemaker, oversees this labor of love and special tribute to the Nightingales." —winemaker
"Lovely straw yellow colour with a steely green tint. Clear aromas which combine a variety of flavours such as green apples, grapefruit lemon zest, medlars and lychees together with hints of moos and hay and a touch of aniseed coming through. Very well structured with perfectly balanced acidity which gives the wine great freshness. Full-bodied. Long and complex finish revealing an array of flavours ending with that typical Verdejo bitter touch." —winemaker
"With a deep red colour, the Marselan Reserve 2016 has a powerful aroma combining red fruit, mineral, mint and eucalyptus notes. It has a soft palate with an intense and long finish. This wine has a great personality and displays a strong expression of ripe red fruits with mineral notes." —winemaker
"The purple/black 2006 Clio is composed of 70% old vine Monastrell and30% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 26 months in new oak. It offers up asuper-sexy nose of underbrush, incense, lavender, blueberry muffin, andblack currant. Voluptuous and creamy on the palate, this loaded,well-balanced wine is a total turn-on. For those who prefer theirflavor in moderation, look elsewhere. Drink this pleasure-bent effortfrom 2011 to 2021."
"The 2007 Clio is made up of 67% old vine Monastrell sourced from avineyard planted in 1944 and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon from a vineyardplanted in 1979. The alcoholic fermentation is in oak followed by ML innew barrels and aging for 26 months in new French and American oak. Aglass-coating opaque purple color, it displays an in-your-face bouquetof wood smoke, underbrush, incense, blueberry, and black currant.Dense, chewy, packed and stacked, the fruit quality is superb, thebalance impeccable, and the finish lasts for nearly a minute. It willbe controversial with those who prefer low alcohol and finesse in theirwines. Those who like unrestrained power and richness will adore itquite aside from the fact that it over-delivers for its relativelymodest price. Drink it from 2011 to 2022."
