Carter Cellars 2018 Beckstoffer Las Piedras ‘Los Compadres’ Cabernet Sauvignon
We are thrilled to offer another wine from the Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard – a 22 acre site renowned for its naturally low yields and well draining soil. Sourced from younger fruit closer to the Sulphur Springs Creek, ‘Los Compadres’ is a pure expression of Clone 4 planted on Rootstock 110R – the hallmark combination of great Beckstoffer wines. Slightly more reserved than the other Carter Cellars Beckstoffer Las Piedras wines, but showcasing a full rich bold palate of dark red and black cherry fruits infused with graphite, wet gravel toasted cacao undertones. When matched with our signature barrel program, this wine ends with a lengthy prodigious finish that will only get better with age.
