ANTHEM CABERNET SAUVIGNON BECKSTOFFER LAS PIEDRAS VINEYARD ST HELENA NAPA VALLEY 2015
NVWE Notes: Drought year ripe and as complex as its famous vineyard promises, this Cabernet is nevertheless a finely balanced dinner wine. The nose offers a luxuriant mix of black raspberry, dark boysenberry, black cherry, blueberry compote, violet, Victorian toffee, cedar, mocha, sweet tobacco leaf and laurel scents. On the palate, it is at once gutsy, gripping, palate-coating and full of blustery fruit and spice. The black cherry, violet and licorice root flavors take center stage, with a core of blueberry and blackberry close behind: these fruit notes seeming a veneer above a rich background of cedar, mace, toffee, mocha, vanilla, dark pipe tobacco and dried herbs. If five years or more from its full maturity, this grand wine’s juiciness and balance make drinking it a satisfying “guilty pleasure” right now. 165 cases made.
