Paul Hobbs Beckstoffer Las Piedras Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
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.
