“This uber-rare Cabernet blend is intensely delicious with a cashmere-smooth texture and is the early leader for Boutique wine of the vintage! From one of the legendary vineyards in Napa, this 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard waltzes across the palate with boldness, exuberance and focus. Dense, ripe, and full-bodied, with velvety tannins, this monumental effort displays a core of cassis, blackberry, mocha and caramel complimented by hints of creamy toffee oak (thanks to generous portions of new French Oak) on the prodigious finish. HIGHLY recommended!” - California Wine Advisors
