98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

  Inky purple-black in color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard gives up notes of blueberry compote, preserved plums and ripe blackberries with touches of incense, dried Mediterranean herbs, menthol and aniseed plus a waft of mossy bark. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is very fine and wonderfully elegant, with incredibly ripe, silt-like tannins and just enough freshness to support the black and blue fruit layers, finishing on a lingering exotic spice note. This beauty should age very well indeed. (LPOB) 98+   (12/2017)

96 points James Suckling

  Blueberries, orange rind, pressed violets and lavender. Very savory on the palate, showing notes of licorice and citrus rind. Polished and fine-grained tannins, a fine, tangible streak of acidity and a very long, blue-fruited finish. The structure is so refined, presenting all the riper flavors in a compact, layered package. Better in 2021.   (5/2018)

94 points Vinous

  The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard is powerful, deep and explosive. Graphite, smoke, leather and tobacco open up, but only with reluctance. As always, the interplay of fruit richness and structured at Las Piedras can yield thrilling, powerful wine endowed with tons of personality. That is very much the case here. (AG)   (3/2018)

93 points Wine Spectator

  Firm, ripe tannins stand out, lending structure and vibrancy to this youngster, framing the core of dark berry, mineral, spice and cedar notes. Tails off a bit where the tannins pin the fruit. Best from 2021 through 2032.  

Intense black garnet in color, this wine entices with complex aromas of ripe berries, green olives, graphite, and cracked black pepper. The dense palate offers lavish flavors of black currants, Herbs De Provence, cigar box and baker's cocoa. Chewy tannins lead to a captivating finish with hints of iodine and spice. We recommend decanting this wine in its youth.

Enjoy this Cabernet Sauvignon with roast lamb, a good old burger, succulent ribeye, cooked medium to rare, cheese and portobello mushrooms.
