Wine Advocate

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard is a little youthfully mute to begin, soon unfurling to offer pronounced notes of baked black plums, Black Forest cake and crème de cassis with hints of incense, dusty soil and Indian spice with a waft of fruitcake. Big, rich and hedonic in the full-bodied mouth, it has velvety tannins and appealing freshness lifting the spicy black fruit preserves, finishing long and fragrant.

Wine Enthusiast

A 100% varietal wine, this is old school in nature, with an herbal undercurrent of sage and cedar. Lively black pepper, clove and tobacco meet a buzzy freshness that matches the ripe intensity and overall grip.
