Notes from the Winemaker:
Almandine garnet in the glass, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon from the Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard is true to site with powerful aromatics of black fruit and currant made ever more intriguing by purple florals, cacao, and graphite. On the palate a savory note of sage layers with black cherry and ripe blueberry, buttressed by smooth, supple tannins. The mouthfeel and finish are characterized by an exquisite tension, and long-lasting textural hedonism. Fit for a wide range of epicurean delights, such as grilled beef tenderloin, rosemary-rubbed rack of lamb, or a sumptuous venison stew. Serve at 50°-55° F.


Ratings & Reviews



98 Points, #30 Top 100 Domestic of 2017 - James Suckling:
"Fabulous aromas of blue fruits and slate. Very perfumed. Full body and polished, velvety yet fine-grained tannins that are lightly austere. Love the Spanish-cedar, cigar-box, tobacco and herbal character. Wonderful finish. Fresh and savory. Drink or hold." - (January 27, 2017)

95 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"One of the highlights in this range, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard is superb. Beams of tannin give the 2014 its rich, explosive personality. Crème de cassis, graphite, gravel, smoke, licorice and blueberry jam hit the palate. Exuberant and yet also structured, the 2014 is shaping up to be a real gem. The Piedras is the most brooding and tannic of the Hobbs Cabernets. It also is highly representative of site." - Antonio Galloni (Dec 2016)

93-95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard is earthy and spicy, with notes of chocolate, loamy soil scents and underbrush. It has terrific density, an opaque purple color, and wonderful fruit. It should drink well for 15 or more years." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (3rd Mar 2016)

93 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"A rich, juicy, pure expression of blackberry, plum, currant and spice flavors, maintaining a supple tenderness along with a firm backbone. Deceptively approachable now, but better to cellar for a few years. Best from 2020 through 2038. 559 cases made." – JL (Web Only - 2017)
