Tasting Notes

Beringer’s Steinhauer Ranch, renamed in 2003 to honor the winery’s long-time vineyard manager, Bob Steinhauer, lies just northeast of the town of Angwin, at about 1800 feet elevation. Its soil is volcanic with a richly red color and the texture is friable and loose. When Beringer first planted the vineyard, the distinctive character of the grapes was immediately evident, and it was selected as a regular part of the Private Reserve blend beginning in the 1993 vintage. Robust tannins and an earthy finish make this a superlative display of Howell Mountain fruit. Careful attention is paid to vineyard blocks, which are kept separate and vinified with a goal of extracting maximum flavor.

Scores & Accolades

    “Perfumed notes of wild blackberry, pine, clove, dried lavender, cacao and tea leaf. It’s medium-bodied with firm, sleek and supple tannins and fresh acidity. Sleek and seamless layers of cool blue and black fruit with forest flavors. Elegant and refined. ” - James Suckling, January 2021

    “Another Howell Mountain release, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Steinhauer Ranch Vineyard has plenty of upfront plum and currant-like fruits as well as a plush, medium to full-bodied, nicely textured style on the palate. I like its mid-palate, and it offers attractive chocolate and smoked herb aromatics, ripe tannins, some gravelly earth-like minerality, and outstanding length. It should evolve for 15-20 years.” - Jeb Dunnuck, January 28, 2021

    “The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Steinhauer Ranch is the most potent and savory of the Howell Mountain Cabernets. Iron, grilled herbs, menthol, licorice and chocolate all run through the 2018. Huge, massive tannins need time to soften, but the 2018 is always going to be a powerhouse. The fruit profile here is on the riper side, but all the elements mesh together effortlessly.” - Antonio Galloni, March 2021
