Enthalpy is a state because it does matter how it gets to the final value.

Enthalpy is a state function/property because its value is independent of how the sample was prepared. Instead, it's value is determined by its current state. In other words, a state property (enthalpy) is not dependent on the path taken to obtain that state.

Enthalpy depends on the initial and final values of the reaction. It does not take into account the path taken to arrive to such destination.
