2015 Pierra Salmanazar
Pierra hails from a single vineyard block atop the impossibly steep, rocky peak of our Leopoldina Vineyard, and represents our most singular expression of time and place.
In keeping with our enduring commitment to honor the heritage of this uniquely challenging terroir, 2015 Pierra weaves together a rich tapestry of nuance and depth, striking a balance between undeniable grit and exceptional purity.
The tradition of Pierra is one that we are proud to continue and share each year. Join us in this tradition with this ultimate large format bottling, perfect (and plenty) to share with your nearest and dearest.
praise for 2015 pierra
"Displaying an inky purple-black color and a nose of warm red currants and red plums with a cassis and blueberry core with wafts of underbrush, moss and cedar chest, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Pierra is full-bodied and very solidly structured with firm, fine-grained tannins and a lively line cutting through the youthful, pure black and red fruits, finishing on a lingering mineral note."
-Lisa Perotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. 97 points.
"The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Pierra emerges from a single block within the Leopoldina vineyard. Rich and sumptuous, yet with striking freshness, the 2015 is absolutely compelling. Beams of salinity and minerality give the red-toned fruit unmistakable energy and vibrancy. Floral notes develop later, adding aromatic lift and striking perfume."
-Antonio Galloni, Vinous. 96+ points.
