The Vineyards
Howell Mountain rises just to the northeast of Beringer's winery in St. Helena, and Bancroft Ranch lies at an elevation of 1,800 feet on the western slope of the mountain.The soil here - gritty white tuff of volcanic origin - is shallow, infertile and extremely well drained. The vines produce small, intensely flavored berries with powerful, concentrated fruit flavors and thick skins that yield rich tannins.

Vintage
The 2006 growing season began with a slightly delayed budbreak after quite a bit of Winter and Spring rain. Summer was moderately warm, with the exception of a heat wave in July that helped speed the growth of the vines. Mild weather continued through much of harvest, allowing for consistent and deliberate ripening of the grapes.

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 hand-selected, custom-toasted barrels of new French Nevers oak from coopers with whom they have long-established relationships.
