Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon Steinhauer Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon Wine 2003

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

My favorite single vineyard offering is the 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Steinhauer Ranch. Its sensational set of aromatics include raspberries black currants graphite truffles volcanic soils camphor and charcoal. Full-bodied with lots of glycerin (14.3% alcohol) this is a robust exuberant flamboyant Cabernet Sauvignon that mirrors the personality and bigger-than-life style of winemaker Ed Sbragia. - RP Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Beringer Vineyards:
  It is impossible to take Beringer’s long history lightly. With their 215 acre plot of land purchased in 1875 and the winery founded in 1876, Jacob and Frederick Beringer’s winery is the oldest continually operating winery in Napa Valley.

  It is impossible to take Beringer’s long history lightly. With their 215 acre plot of land purchased in 1875 and the winery founded in 1876, Jacob and Frederick Beringer’s winery is the oldest continually operating winery in Napa Valley. In 2001, it was named a historic district in the National Register for Historic Places. Current winemaker Laurie Hook and winemaster Ed Sbragia continue to draw from over a dozen vineyards to create world-class wines from varying soil compositions and climates. The winery managed to survive, and even thrive, during Prohibition by selling sacramental wines with a federal license. Since the wine was being made for religious purposes, it was legal! A unique aspect of Beringer is the tunnel system that was carved into the side of Spring Mountain around 1880. Chinese immigrant workers, the same workers that helped build the Trans-Continental Railroad, spent years hand-chiseling the 1,200 feet of tunnels. To this day, the tunnels act as a natural insulator, keeping the temperature between 58 and 60 degrees year-round, ideal for storing wine. Read less

The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Steinhauer Vineyard is a big full-bodied heady effort. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

( 85) Good bright ruby-red. Cassis plum cedar and tobacco on the nose lifted by a piney note. Dense and sweet but also juicy and sharply delineated with flavors of mountain berries and tobacco. This is always a somewhat rustic style of cabernet by Beringer standards but this vintage possesses excellent clarity of flavor. Finishes with substantial mouthdusting tannins. Will it gain in complexity with bottle aging? 91 points Stephen Tanzers IWC.
