Paul Hobbs Beckstoffer Las Piedras Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Paul Hobbs Beckstoffer Las Piedras Cabernet Sauvignon 2013



This wine demonstrates striking aromatic amplitude: notes of red fruit, rich cassis, graphite, dried tobacco leaf and wood smoke burst from the glass. This is an expansive wine structured around fine tannin, almost saline minerality and rich, intense fruit. Aged 20 months in French oak barrels, 100% new.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard displays loads of charcoal, barbecue smoke, blueberry and blackberry fruit, an opulent, full-bodied mouthfeel, and hints of charcoal and subtle oak in a full-bodied, multi-dimensional style. Drink it over the next 20 years.

Wine SpectatorRefreshingly taut, dense and vibrant, this is well-built, with a mix of dark berry, currant, plum and blueberry, broadening midpalate and ending with a long, lingering aftertaste where the fine-grained tannins capture and hold the flavors. Drink now through 2032. 836 cases made.
