Beringer Vineyards Luminus 2012 Oak Knoll District chardonnay

Pleasant, but overpriced.

Tasted at 57-62 degrees on the IR temp gun. Color: luminescent gold. Nose: lemon, chopped pecans. Mouthfeel: medium-bodied. Tail trail: 10 seconds with a vibrant mid-palate lift. Flavors: lemon zest, nectarines, orange rind, bitter pear.

Alcohol: 14.3%. Napa Valley nested AVA. Winemaker Laurie Hook. Retail: $35. Paid: $25. Value: $20. Power: 3/5. Balance: 2/5. Depth: 3/5. Finesse: 2/5. Rated: 90. This is WAwineman… uncorked, uneducated but not uncouth.
