Beringer Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain Steinhauer Ranch 2009
91 points Wine Spectator: A lot of Cabernet at this price. Combines ripe, plump, plum, black cherry and black berry flavors in a rich, smooth, polished style, full bodied and firming nicely on the finish, where the tannins have a minerally edge. Drink now through 2021. (Dec 2011) 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot.
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
External Reviews for Beringer Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain Steinhauer Ranch
Serves up lots of pure, ripe fig, melon and pear flavors in an elegant, understated style. Hints of smoky, toasty oak show through on the finish, where it turns complex.
Has an especially ripe and creamy mouthfeel with complex layers of pineapple, apple, pear and citrus flavors and hints of toasted almond, vanilla and nutmeg spice.
Ripe and rich, with fig, peach pit, butter and caramel notes, finishing with toasty oak flavors on the finish. Drink now.
Aging in French oak aided in the creation of a rich, smooth, vanilla-laden chardonnay. Butter and light touches of caramel add depth to the delicate fruit flavors.
As opulent as they come. Oozes over the palate... Tropical-fruit flavors; creamy custardy texture.
Butterscotch, honey, nutmeg, and toasted coconut aromas highlight mouth-coating tropical fruit, creamy vanilla and balancing citrus flavors.
A tough wine to size up: The aromas are heavy, with sizable oak casting a mature note over everything. "Toast" is the operative word here, and if you don't like smoky oak, you should probably head the other way. A nutty, leesy, smoky wine that will likely please some and turn off others.
