2006 St Clement Cabernet Sauvignon Steinhauer Ranch Howell Mountain 1.5L

2006 St Clement Cabernet Sauvignon Steinhauer Ranch Howell Mountain 1.5L

Signature aromas of strawberry, cherry blossom, red cherry, cola and vanilla introduce this powerful wine. The palate features flavors of black cherry, dark chocolate, smoky oak and a spicy complexity.

Steinhauer Ranch is located 2,000 feet above the Napa Valley on esteemed Howell Mountain. The fruit for this Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a relatively flat section ofthe vineyard that is surrounded by Redwoods. As a result this vineyard experiences a very long, even growing season and is often the last picked at harvest. The 2006 growing season started out slowly with higher than average rainfall from January into spring,which provided much needed soil moisture during the growing season. Cool, wet weather in spring contributed to a later than normal bud break, but warm summer months kept harvest on track by gradually advancing fruit maturity and ripeness in the vineyard. The last two weeks of October provided just enough sun to ripen the fruit from Steinhauer Ranch, and the fruit was picked just before the first winter rain.

Winemaker Comments
Signature aromas of strawberry, cherry blossom, red cherry, cola and vanilla introduce this powerful wine. The palate features flavors of black cherry, dark chocolate, smoky oak and a spicy complexity. The classic Howell Mountain tannin structure leads to a long, elegant finish. This wine is aged in 100 percent new French oak for nineteen months.
