THE VINEYARDS
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 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.
VINTAGE
The 2006 vintage got off to a cool start and featured heavy rains towards the end of February, which
transitioned into the warmest March on record with temperatures reaching the low 90’s. The warm
weather continued through May but summer months were cooler than normal. Eight to ten very warm
days towards the end of summer helped push maturity. Winemaster Ed
Sbragia and Winemaker Laurie Hook decided to harvest the majority of the
fruit from early September through mid-October as each block reached the
full-flavored maturity they were seeking.
WINEMAKING
With Cabernet of this quality, Ed and Laurie believe in taking a minimalist
approach to winemaking. Vinifying the fruit from each vineyard separately,
the winemaking team used tailored pump-over techniques for optimal
extraction, and then aged the wines for approximately two years in handselected,
custom-toasted barrels of new French Nevers oak from coopers with
whom they have long-established relationships.
