LPV Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Pop and pour. On the nose: black cherry, currant, oaky vanilla, anise, pencil lead. Taste: Schrader dense/rich, smooth wine with black fruit, currants, spice, oak, fig and a plumy cedar medium plus finish. Not a CCS or RBS, but I would not dump and spit! Cheers! — 6 days ago

The nose starts off with subtle barnyard, then turn to fig, caramel, brown sugar, balsamic, game, and tobacco. Sweet cherry magically emerges on the palate - so youthful and fresh, and lingers on. — 19 days ago

When I think of Paso reds, ripe and rich are the first things come to mind. Not this bottle though. At 8 years old, the fruits are so fresh and pure. Only on the 3rd day that it started to show some tertiary notes of fig, black tea leaf, and dried mushroom. Love the 13.5% abv.
From one of my favorite boutique wineries. 299 case made.

This Zin continues to impress me. Plum, blueberry, fig, black pepper, espresso, and light tobacco. Juicy and smooth on the palate. Round acidity and tannins. Lingering candied and smoky finish.
Paring with burger is as good as it gets. Fantastic value for a single vineyard bottling from St. Helena.

Nose has blackberry jam, moist leather, fig paste, charred wood, chopped dark chocolate and faint vanilla.

Palate has dried blueberry, blackberry, dried black currant, muddy garden soil, faint dried strawberry with mild tannins and medium acidity.

Solid pairing to a baked 'Mac & Cheese' dish fancied up with a béchamel sauce, Gorgonzola & Fontina cheeses, breadcrumbs and Casarecce Corte pasta. (Interpretation of a recipe courtesy of Joanne Weir)
