LPV Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

The 2013 Schrader ‘LPV’ Cabernet Sauvignon is a truly thrilling wine from this storied Napa winery. This is the third vintage of this wine made by the esteemed Thomas Brown. The wine was aged for twenty months in French oak and utilizes both clone 4 and 337 from the Beckstoffer Las Piedras vineyard. The ‘LPV’ benefits from about an hour of air, as the wine gains immediate appeal with its downright sexy bouquet of red rose petals that emerge alongside creme de cassis, tar, mocha and sandalwood. Soft and generous on the mouth, this silky wine effortlessly dances across the mid-palate. The plush, seductive texture gives way to gobs of dense dark fruits, with sweet pipe tobacco, tar and Turkish coffee flavors all marching on parade. Truly a scintillating wine right now, as this will age for decades to come. Drink 2020-2040- 97

Old Sparky Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Entirely sourced from the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, the 2009 Schrader ‘Old Sparky’ Cabernet Sauvignon is a massive, dense treat right now that has a long life ahead of it. The nose offers plenty of appeal with its espresso bean, chocolate cake, red bell pepper and creosote tones with blueberry pie that all march in line. Layers of chocolate infused dark fruits, blueberry compote and tar line this exquisite palate, with minerals and dusty terroir melding together in the glass. This wine walks the tight rope between finesse and power, effortlessly moving across the palate. Gorgeous now, this scintillating wine will cellar well for another twenty years.

Bevan Cellars

Harbison Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

This is easily my favorite Bevan wine. Gobs of fruit but short of overt sweetness. Relatively fine tannins. Dark fruits, cocoa. The best part is a graphite/tar note that emerges late with a nice acidity. — 4 days ago

9.1

Medium greenish yellow. Fresh and vibrant nose with layers of melon, honeysuckle, apricot, Asian pear and a bit of citrus. Medium acidity (6.5/10) with a medium minus body. Clean palate with a bit of lemon, grapefruit and wet rocks. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2023.

Great pairing with The Feed and dumplings.

S.R. Tonella Cellars

Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

With family roots to BV over decades of winemaking, the style shows in this wine. A black fruit dominant wine. The finish on this wine makes SURE you don't miss the Rutherford dust, as it is ABUNDANT. For someone wanting to learn about Classic Napa and, further, classic Rutherford wine, **THIS** is the wine to serve. This wine is right on par with Wm. Harrison for Rutherford gem deluxe. And crafted in the nuclear style. This one can hold for 20 years easily. Well done Raymond and Steve. Fantstic Napa cab. — 13 days ago
