In comparison to the Dr. Crane, the 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Lithology Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard is more floral and elegant, yet still brings that classic Lithology richness and sexiness. Cassis, crushed flowers, violets, and camphor define the bouquet, and it’s full-bodied, with great tannins and the balance and depth to evolve for 25-30 years.
The bouquet is a vibrant mix of red and dark fruits, accented by herbs and warm conifer, and enhanced by mineral complexities that evoke pulverized riverbed rocks. True to its vineyard origins, the wine showcases a muscular structure without sacrificing elegance. The palate offers both density and refinement, culminating in a finish of extraordinary length and balance.
