There were two 2016s presented, both magical wines that are just about as good as it gets. The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Las Piedras Vineyard comes from a rocky site outside of St. Helena and is all Cabernet aged 23 months in new barrels. A monster bouquet of crème de cassis and black raspberry-driven fruits are mixed with notes of crushed violets, unsmoked tobacco, spring flowers, and crushed rocks. These all flow to a full-bodied wine that builds incrementally on the palate, with a deep, layered mid-palate, ultra-fine tannins, and the balance and purity that make this vintage so special.
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard (all clone 4) comes prancing out of the glass with exuberant baked plums, blueberry coulis and crème de cassis with hints of chargrill, wild sages, iron ore and black olives with a waft of fragrant soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is beautifully expressed with impressive restraint to all that dark fruit and loads of earthy accents, framed by plush tannins and background freshness, finishing long and savory.
