95Robert M. Parker Jr.

...sensational... ... lots of cassis, a hint of lead pencil shavings, licorice and white chocolate. The wine has superb texture, an opulent, full-bodied mouthfeel, and a rich, layered finish. Drink over the next 12-15 years.(Oct. 2014)

94Vinous / IWC

Laced with graphite, smoke, violets, plums and black cherries. The flavors are bright, precise and chiseled, especially for the year. Those themes reappear on the finely cut finish. The energy and tension are classic Las Piedras


United States, California, Napa Valley, St. Helena, Las Piedras Vineyard

Las Piedras was first planted in the mid-19th century, and within a few years its grapes were being used to make wine by Henry Amstutz, one of the area’s first important winemakers. The 25-acre vineyard in St. Helena was acquired by Beckstoffer in 1983. Today it is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon. Beckstoffer Vineyards owns and farms more than 3,600 acres of highly prestigious grape growing vineyards in Napa Valley, Mendocino County and the Red Hills of Lake County. A senior executive with Heublein in the 1960s, Andy Beckstoffer is credited with steering Napa Valley vintners towards improving farming and the quality of the grapes used for wine. Grapes from any Beckstoffer vineyards are considered among the finest available in California.


Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
