This is a solid Cabernet Sauvignon with blackberry, cocoa, stone and spice character. Full and intense with a core of fruit and tannins. Give it three to four years to come together.
From one of the great sites in Oakville, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard bristles on the palate with considerable energy and focus. Freshly cut flowers, red berries and crushed rocks all come to life in the glass. In 2010 Las Piedras stands out for its bright, intense salinity, which is the essential characteristic of this site. The 2010 needs at least a few years in bottle to settled down, but it is drop-dead gorgeous, even today. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030. (AG) 95+
Glass-staining purple. Powerful, deeply scented cherry pit, cassis, pipe tobacco and licorice aromas, with vanilla and floral nuances adding complexity. Succulent and expansive on the palate, offering intense bitter cherry and dark berry flavors and a hint of candied violet. Rich but lively, with superb finishing clarity, well-knit tannins and a late jolt of peppery spices. (ST)
First you feel the velvety softness of this Cab. Then the flavors arrive, explosive in blackberries, cherries and currants, green olives, sage, cocoa and oak. Immediately the tannins close in, astringent, dry, hard. The bottom line is an extraordinary wine but one that’s not drinkable now. Hold until 2018. *Cellar Selection*
