Beringer Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain Steinhauer Ranch 1992

Winemaker's Notes:

Since 1981, Beringer winemaster Ed Sbragia has created the Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon by combining wines from a handful of selected vineyards for a complex flavor profile that layers the fruits of each vineyard's unique soils and climate. In the 1992 vintage, he combined the wines from these vineyards, which had been separately vinted and aged.

  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
