Winemaker Notes

Alejandro Bulgheroni Estate Lithology is a series of single vineyard and AVA-designated wines made from select sites within Napa Valley. The history of Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard closely resembles that of Alejandro Bulgheroni Estae. It was once part of the Rancho Carne Humana Spanish land grant given to Edward T. Bale by Mexican General Vallejo. It was first planted by Bale to Mission grapes, making it one of the first vineyards planted in the Saint Helena Appellation.

Critical Acclaim

JD 96
Jeb Dunnuck
From a rocky vineyard just west of Dr. Crane, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Lithology Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard is a beautiful, elegant, mineral-laced wine that offers full-bodied richness and depth as well as outstanding length. Complex notes of red and black currants, dried flowers, crushed rocks, and flowery incense dominate the bouquet. It's an incredibly sumptuous, satisfying Cabernet that has both complexity and richness.
JS 95
James Suckling
Loads of blackberries, crushed black pepper and black tea. Crushed stones. Medium to full body with firm, juicy tannins and a lightly austere finish that gives this wine energy and focus. Drinkable now, but better in 2022.
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Fruit for this was harvested on October 5—it's 100% Cabernet Sauvignon fermented in stainless and puncheon and aged in 70% new French oak. The 2017 Lithology Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras is very deep garnet-purple in color and a little stubbornly mute at this youthful stage, but with coaxing, it offers up crushed black and red plums, fresh black berries and warm cassis plus hints of forest floor, candied violets and baker's chocolate with a waft of kirsch. Full-bodied, the palate has a solid backbone of ripe, grainy tannins and beautiful freshness supporting the energetic fruit, finishing on a lingering mineral note.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Enticing, featuring succulent plum, blackberry and boysenberry flavors, melded to black licorice and apple wood accents. Juicy energy carries the finish as the fruit takes an encore over a subtle sassafras note. A showy style that pulls it off. Drink now through 2030.

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wine. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
