2016 Anthem Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard (750ml)15 0 0 0
Deals like this don't come around often in Napa these days which is why we are thrilled to announce we recently gained access to an under the radar boutique winery called Anthem. What makes this winery notable is that they have access to the prized Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard for incredible prices! The winemaker Jeff Ames cut his teeth working at cult wineries Scrader, Maybach and TOR so his experience shows in the glass. His Anthem Cabernets are extremely limited in production and only typically available at select restaurants. We tasted both the wines yesterday and they absolutely over delivered for their current price point. Just for comparison, the next lowest price for 2016 Beckstoffer Las Piedras Cabernet in the marketplace is $250+ making the anthem more than half the price for the same fruit!!!
Beckstoffer Las Piedras Tasting Notes:
"Easily the standout here, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard comes from a terrific site outside of St. Helena and is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep purple-colored with a mineral-laced bouquet of red and black fruits, tobacco leaf, bouquet garni, and hints of loamy earth, this beauty is medium to full-bodied, has a plush, rounded textured, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It has the class to shine today as well as keep for 15-20 years or more." 94 points - Jeb Dunnuck
"Made of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard is deep garnet-purple in color and reveals expressive black cherries, blackberries and warm blackcurrants with hints of violets, black olives, Indian spices and cigar box. Full-bodied, rich and powerful, the palate is filled with well-poised black fruit layers and firm, grainy tannins, matched by bold freshness and finishing long." 94 points - Wine Advocate
