PEDRAS

Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

(Rutherford, Napa Valley, CA) $90

Ninety dollars is not inexpensive. But I recently snuck this gem into a blind tasting of Napa cabernets over $150, and it came out on top. No surprise. For not only is Pedras delicious, beautifully structured, and spellbindingly long, it also has what I call choreography—waves of flavor, volume, and velocity. Great wines do not sit dully on the palate; they appear to move physically and spatially. Or, like this wine, they fairly whirl around the palate. If you love cabernets that are rich but vibrantly alive, this wine from a small family winery in the heart of the valley is for you. (14.5% abv.)
