94pointsPiedra Hill 2004 Purple Label Cabernet Sauvignon (Howell Mountain)

The wine is owned by the Smiths, who started La Jota and know from Howell Mountain Cabernet. Judging from the last few bottlings, it's off to a promising start. Dry, rich and balanced, fruit is the star here, with explosive blackberries and cherries, while 100% new oak adds lush layers of cedar and smoke. Fully enjoyable now, with decanting; it should enjoy a long life for at least 10 years.
