Resplendent with a deep purple color and aromas of crushed violets, ripe blueberry, and clean earth, the cabernet sauvignon from this St. Helena site is endowed with structure and refinement. A soft entry on the palate carries layered flavors of ripe blackberry, sweet chocolate, savory herbs, and a distinct wet stone minerality. Integrated tannins lead to a long finish with hints of salinity and spice. Showing both depth and precision, the wine imparts a compelling tension throughout.

Wine AdvocateDeep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard opens with provocative notions of crushed rocks, fertile loam and truffles with a core of warm cassis, blackberry pie and wild blueberries with touches of camphor and cloves. Medium to full-bodied and built like a brick house, it packs in the muscular fruit layers with compelling red fruit sparks, framed by firm, grainy tannins and finishing very long and very earthy. 402 cases produced.

Wine SpectatorA solid, fruit-driven style, with plum, cassis and boysenberry notes, backed by lightly brambly grip and an enticing licorice streak. The finish shows some toasty oomph, but the fruit wins out easily. Very well-poised and should cellar nicely. Best from 2020 through 2032. 402 cases made.
