Medium to full-bodied and built like a brick house, it packs in the muscular fruit layers with compelling red fruit sparks, framed by firm, grainy tannins and finishing very long and very earthy. 402 cases produced. -LPB

Vertical in feel, with explosive energy, the Piedras dazzles from the very first taste. Graphite, black cherry, menthol and crushed rocks are some of the many aromas and flavors that open up in the glass, but it is the wine's pure, driving energy and overall focus that leave the strongest impression. The 2016 is simply a great expression of this St. Helena site. There's nothing else to say. -- Antonio Galloni

This is a powerful and muscular Napa cabernet that is tannin driven with a dense and solid center palate. Full-bodied and chewy. This is a great wine for the cellar. Traditional flow. Try after 2024.

The finish shows some toasty oomph, but the fruit wins out easily. Very well-poised and should cellar nicely. Best from 2020 through 2032. 402 cases made. — JM
