Definitively elegant is how Las Piedras in St Helena sashays across your palate. Jeb Dunnuck fell for its charms, Lots of lifted red and blue fruits, violets, bay leaf, and bouquet garni notes emerge from the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard LPV, a concentrated yet elegant 2019 that builds nicely with time in the glass. Coming from a Grand Cru site outside of St. Helena, it shows the classic Schrader richness and depth yet is just as much about elegance and finesse. Buy a bottle or two and fall in love with this blackberry charmer.

“In top vintages, Schrader’s Beckstoffer Cabernet Sauvignon-based wines can be as good as money can buy ... anywhere in the world.” – Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate It’s hard to point to a winemaker in the Napa Valley on a more consistent winning streak than Thomas Rivers Brown. The wines he makes for Schrader, Maybach, Double Diamond, Kinsella, and Jones Family do not share a monolithic sameness, but rather individuality. Because Brown makes wine naturally - with no spinning cones, additives, or hocus pocus - the only thing the wines have in common is their greatness, and the monster critical acclaim that has followed. Which brings us to Schrader. Simply put, these are some of the most consistent and critically acclaimed wines being made in the valley right now. They are truly rare and great, made from historic Grand Cru sites in St. Helena, Rutherford, and Oakville.
