Beringer Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain Steinhauer Ranch 1984

Mature, with complex currant, anise, dried plum and tar notes, it turns dry yet holds its fruit better than most, finishing with a persistent aftertaste that echoes mature Cabernet flavors.--California Cabernet 74/84/94 retrospective.

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

A seductive, sweet, creamy nose of chocolate, cassis, and herbs is followed by an opulently-styled, soft, supple Cabernet that has quickly reached full maturity. The wine exhibits a judicious touch of toasty new oak. The finish is silky-smooth. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.
