  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    Bright ruby-red. Aromas of cassis, licorice, mocha and coffee bean are lifted by a mineral note. Supple, pliant and rich, with a youthfully medicinal quality but good sweetness and stuffing to the dark berry and dark chocolate flavors. A step up in depth and texture over the Vogt and Bancroft Ranch cabernets, with the stuffing to support its chewy tannins.

    The deep 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Steinhauer Vineyard offers plenty of berry fruit, spring flower and graphite characteristics.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 89

    This shows a solid core of rich, earth- and mineral-tinged dark berry, plum and raspberry fruit, gaining depth and persistence amid a firm tannic framework. Should gain.

  • Beringer Vineyards is the oldest continuously operating winery in the Napa Valley. In 2001, the estate was placed on the National Register for Historic Places as a Historic District. Jacob Beringer's foresight in recognizing the quality and potential of grape growing in the Napa Valley is part of the living heritage of Beringer Vineyards . With the present use of state-of-the-art technology applied to age-old traditions, Beringer Vineyards' wines continue to reflect a single-minded dedication to the making of memorable wines from great Napa Valley vineyards.

    California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
