Anthem Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
Andy Beckstoffer’s Las Piedras Vineyard is one of his six heritage vineyards in the Napa Valley. It has been under vine for over 150 years, with roots tracing back to Mexican land grants. This 22-acre vineyard produces only Cabernet Sauvignon and is located at the foot of Spring Mountain, in the St. Helena AVA. The vineyard takes its name from the gravelly river washed soil, as Las Piedras translated to “little pebbles,” in Spanish.
With a passion for wine and a desire to produce small quantities of ultra-premium wines from the most distinctive and promising vineyard in the Napa Valley, Proprietors Julie and Justin Arbuckle formed Anthem Winery in 2009. Anthem’s guiding principle is simple: only the hight quality, from vine to bottle.
Anthems 2016 vintage is another remarkable 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine spends 18 months aging in 100% new French oak and another 20 months in the bottle before release. This expression is exceptionally plush, showing earthy spices and dark berries, highlighted by black olive. The palate features a strong structure and backbone that are followed by smooth, firm tannins and velvety black fruit. Enjoy now or anytime over the next 15 years!
