Super dark purplish red and completely coats the glass. Dark nose with tobacco, cassis, perfume, black currants and sweet spices. Heavy tannins (7/10) and full bodied. Layered palate with gravel, dark berries, leather, cigar box, sweet spices and solid minerality. Insanely long and a touch dry finish. Drink till 2030.

Deep purplish ruby red. A little mute on the nose to start with some savory notes, layers of dark black fruits, cinnamon and some minerality. Balanced acidity with heavy tannins (7.5/10). Full bodied with tons of dark and red fruit with some sweet spices too. Long and lingering finish. Needs a long decant. Drink till 2033.

I’ve posted this wine a couple of times already, but this is a really terrific wine! Everything I could want in a Napa Cabernet.

This was my favorite out of a tasting of 8 Las Piedras cabs. Surprisingly open and silky for a 2013. Really luscious bing cherry fruit. Just a very sexy wine.
