Paul Hobbs 'Las Piedras' Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley 2016
98 Points Robert Parkers Wine Advocate:
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard opens with provocative notions of crushed rocks, fertile loam and truffles with a core of warm cassis, blackberry pie and wild blueberries with touches of camphor and cloves. Medium to full-bodied and built like a brick house, it packs in the muscular fruit layers with compelling red fruit sparks, framed by firm, grainy tannins and finishing very long and very earthy.
96 Points James Suckling:
This is a powerful and muscular Napa cabernet that is tannin driven with a dense and solid center palate. Full-bodied and chewy. This is a great wine for the cellar. Traditional flow. Try after 2024.
