Our inaugural release of Las Piedras Cabernet Sauvignon is a study in structure and refinement. Deep garnet in color, it expresses aromas of blackberry, dark plum and boysenberry, along with a touch of clean earth. The palate is smooth and opulent, featuring finely sculpted layers of black currants, bittersweet cocoa, freshly cut cigar tobacco, damp earth and wet slate. The dense mid-palate tantalizes with acacia flowers and vanillin, and leads to a pleasing 60-second finish.

Built around roasted coffee, crushed rock, dried currant, mocha and cedar, this packs in a lot of flavors. Well-proportioned and tannic to the point of being chewy, with flavors spilling out on the finish. Best from 2014 through 2025.

This hovers on the verge of overripeness, with a hint of raisin, but it wisely pulls back at the last second into a luscious fortress of blackberry, cassis, chocolate and sweet smoky oak. So smooth and luxurious on the palate, the texture dazzles, despite some heat. The all-important tannins are nearly perfect. Drink now-2016, especially with steak.

High-pitched aromas of red- and blackcurrant, Indian spices and potpourri, with hint of vanilla lending depth. Bright and focused on the palate, offering intense dark berry and bitter cherry flavors that expand and gain sweetness with air. Soft tannins come on late and add shape to the very long, spicy, seamless finish.
