"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Pedregal Vineyard is a dead ringer for a great vintage of Ducru-Beaucaillou. Pure crème de cassis, graphite, smoked earth, and tobacco leaf notes all flow to a full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon that exudes class, elegance, and purity, all while still carrying serious depth and richness. Made from 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Petit Verdot, it has ripe tannin, impeccable balance and a great finish, all promising a long life."

"Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Pedregal Vineyard opens with beautiful lilac, chocolate box and unsmoked cigars scents over a core of cassis, black cherries and preserved plums with wafts of menthol and wood smoke. Full-bodied and packed to the gills with ripe, expressive black fruits and savory layers, it has a firm frame of grainy tannins and great freshness, finishing with fantastic persistence."
