Brawny and richly plummy and brimming in dark cherry, black and red licorice, this wine has a gorgeous nose of graphite and leather, with subtle, complex notes of grit and crushed rock. The tannins present as dusty and polished, with extraordinary length. Best 2024–2034. *Cellar Selection* (VB)
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard comes from a warmer vineyard in St Helena (it’s one of the original vineyards of the region) and offers a straight-up classic, textbook style in its crème de cassis, white chocolate, blueberry, Asian spice and hints of leafy herbs. Full-bodied, elegant, and seamless on the palate, it stays straight and focused, with ripe tannin, good acidity, and a clean finish. Drink it anytime over the coming two decades.
This is a very extracted cabernet with lots of blackcurrant and licorice character. Full body, chewy and intense. Needs three to five years of bottle age to soften.
Another Beckstoffer site, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard exhibits great fruit, not quite the body and intensity of the Missouri Hopper or the To Kalon, but it is still a full-bodied, elegant, mineral-laced wine with blueberry and black raspberry fruit, decent acidity, and light tannin. It should be drunk over the next 20 years. (RP)
The 2014 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer - Las Piedras hits the palate with serious depth and intensity. A prototypical modern Napa Cabernet, the Piedras offers notable intensity and vibrancy to balance the sheer ripeness of the fruit. This is one of the darker, more virile wines in the range. Readers can look forward to another decade-plus of fine drinking, although I would cellar the 2014 for at least a few years before opening a bottle. The 2014 is both very ripe and very structured.
