Complex notes of red and black currants, dried flowers, crushed rocks, and flowery incense dominate the bouquet. It's an incredibly sumptuous, satisfying Cabernet that has both complexity and richness.

Loads of blackberries, crushed black pepper and black tea. Crushed stones. Medium to full body with firm, juicy tannins and a lightly austere finish that gives this wine energy and focus. Drinkable now, but better in 2022.

The 2017 Lithology Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras is very deep garnet-purple in color and a little stubbornly mute at this youthful stage, but with coaxing, it offers up crushed black and red plums, fresh black berries and warm cassis plus hints of forest floor, candied violets and baker's chocolate with a waft of kirsch. Full-bodied, the palate has a solid backbone of ripe, grainy tannins and beautiful freshness supporting the energetic fruit, finishing on a lingering mineral note. 80 cases were made.- LPB

The...   (94+ points) The 2017 Lithology Las Piedras is tannic and imposing, as wines from this St. Helena site tend to be. Black cherry, graphite, spice, licorice, blackberry jam and leather open up with time in the glass. The Piedras is easily the most reticent wine in this range. Accordingly, it needs time in the cellar to be at its best and most expressive. -- Antonio Galloni

Juicy energy carries the finish as the fruit takes an encore over a subtle sassafras note. A showy style that pulls it off. Drink now through 2030. 67 cases made. — JM
