Exhibiting intense garnet, the aromatics juxtapose between powerful blackcurrant and cocoa with fresh lavender and sage. The palate is bolstered by soft, lush tannins that harmonize the ripe blackberry and cassis flavors with intense mineral expressions of limestone and iron. All these components impart a compelling tension throughout the long finish and capture the ripe and mineral aspect of this inimitable site. Food Pairing: Exceptional with coffee-rubbed ribeye with braised collard greens, spaghetti cacao e pepe, or Pot-Au-Feu.

Wine AdvocateInky purple-black in color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard gives up notes of blueberry compote, preserved plums and ripe blackberries with touches of incense, dried Mediterranean herbs, menthol and aniseed plus a waft of mossy bark. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is very fine and wonderfully elegant, with incredibly ripe, silt-like tannins and just enough freshness to support the black and blue fruit layers, finishing on a lingering exotic spice note. This beauty should age very well indeed.

Wine SpectatorFirm, ripe tannins stand out, lending structure and vibrancy to this youngster, framing the core of dark berry, mineral, spice and cedar notes. Tails off a bit where the tannins pin the fruit.
