Vintage 2011
Wine Type Red
Varietal Cabernet Sauvignon
Region Napa Valley
Winemaker Laurie Hook

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. The 2011 Steinhauer was harvested on October 31st and was aged for 17 months in barrel.

210 cases produced.

"The deep 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Steinhauer Vineyard offers plenty of berry fruit, spring flower and graphite characteristics." Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, October 2013.

Vintage Notes

With meticulous care to the vines during the 2011 vintage, we achieved a small crop of vibrantly flavored grapes. The small yields resulted from an unusually wet winter and spring, which delayed bloom and reduced berry-set. The cooler-than-average growing season made the onset to harvest one of the latest in recent memory. While the cool temperatures presented some challenges that required nerves of steel, we were rewarded by the opportunity to make truly elegant wine with layers of complex flavors.
