    "Already a dream to drink but will improve magnificently." ~ Suckling

    "Full-bodied, concentrated and seductive, it has a gorgeous velvety texture and plenty of freshness lifting the opulent flavors..." ~ Parker

    James Suckling: "Amazing aromas of Chinese spices, sweet tobacco, incense, anise and dark fruits. Full-bodied, yet tight and reserved. Great density and polish. An entrancing wine. Lasts for minutes on the palate. Already a dream to drink but will improve magnificently." Jan 2017

    Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate
    :  "Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and displaying a deep garnet-purple color, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard opens with pronounced crème de cassis, mocha, black forest cake and cloves over lavender, bay leaf and menthol nuances. Full-bodied, concentrated and seductive, it has a gorgeous velvety texture and plenty of freshness lifting the opulent flavors, finishing with a spices and herbs kick." Oct 2017

    Winery:  "Almandine garnet in the glass, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon from the Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard is true to site with powerful aromatics of black fruit and currant made ever more intriguing by purple florals, cacao, and graphite. On the palate a savory note of sage layers with black cherry and ripe blueberry, buttressed by smooth, supple tannins. The mouthfeel and finish are characterized by an exquisite tension, and long-lasting textural hedonism. Fit for a wide range of epicurean delights, such as grilled beef tenderloin, rosemary-rubbed rack of lamb, or a sumptuous venison stew. Serve at 50°- 55° F."
