"A bolder, dark-fruited and more powerful expression of Howell Mountain that carries a deeper line weight of tannins. Aromas are tinged with dark-roasted herbs, wet concrete-like savory notes, graphite, cassis and currants, leading to a palate with distinctively powerful tannins that are precisely groomed. Impressive depth and freshness. Try from 2021."- James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, May 2018
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Steinhauer Vineyard has a fragrant violets, incense and potpourri character over a core of blackberries and black cherries, with touches of pencil shavings and underbrush. Full-bodied, concentrated and full-on gorgeous in the mouth, it fills the palate with ripe black fruits supported by fine-grained tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate, October 2017
Originally known as Tre Colline for its memorable undulating terrain, the 36-acre benchland vineyard was renamed in 2003 to honor Beringer’s long-time vineyard manager, Bob Steinhauer, who helped establish the reserve level vineyards across Napa Valley. At 1,800 feet elevation, southwest facing on Howell Mountain, just northeast of Angwin, Steinhauer Ranch features volcanic iron-rich soils notable for their rich red color, with a friable, loose texture. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc thrive in the sparse, infertile soil where cool mountain temperatures with high solar radiation above the fog line allow grapes to languish on the vine, developing bold tannins and distinctive notes.
