RATINGS

97Wine Enthusiast

...delivers structured elegance around a wall of powerful concentration and intensity. Dried herb, cedar and crisp red fruit overlay a grip of thick tannin and toasted oak, ending in clove, black pepper and crushed rock.

96+ Jeb Dunnuck

...more red fruits (there are some blacker fruits as well) to go with more savory, leather, baking spice, chocolate, and loamy soil notes...full-bodied and concentrated, yet manages to stays beautifully balanced and light on its feet, with great tannins...a beautiful, classic Las Piedras...

93+ The Wine Advocate

...notes of tar and tapenade over a core of cassis, juicy blackberries and ripe plums, plus suggestions of pencil shavings and bay leaves. The medium to full-bodied palate is firm...delivering tons of energetic black fruit flavors and a good long finish.

92James Suckling

...ripe blackberries and plums, sweet vanilla, coffee and smoke. Full-bodied and viscous with deeply ripe, almost sweetish fruit, reminiscent of blueberry jam. Very round and creamy with a warming sensation on the palate. Long finish.

REGION

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.

TYPE

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.
