The Vineyards
Beringer's Steinhauer Ranch lies just northeast of the town of Angwin on Howell Mountain, 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, Ed quickly recognized the distinctive character of the grapes, selecting its Cabernet as a regular part of the Private Reserve blend beginning in the 1993 vintage. The 2000 Steinhauer Ranch Cabernet is a graceful powerhouse featuring firm tannins, unctuous black fruit flavors, hints of licorice and chocolate, and a slightly earthy note.

Winemaking
With Cabernet of this quality, Ed and Laurie take a minimalist approach to winemaking. They use gentle pump-over techniques during fermentation for optimal extraction and then age the wines in hand-selected, custom toasted barrels of new French Nevers oak from coopers with whom Ed has long-established relationships. I buy barrels from several coopers for these wines, he explains. Oak can be as individual as grapes, and different coopers bring out different nuances just as winemakers do. Some barrels are spicier, some have more caramel and vanilla notes. The wines are put through 100-percent malolactic fermentation for added complexity and softness, and then aged for nearly two years before bottling.
