Carter Cellars 2018 Beckstoffer Las Piedras ‘La Verdad’ Cabernet Sauvignon
One of our most highly sought after wines, the 2018 ‘La Verdad’ is ultra low production wine from our original block of stressed vines on the Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard. Inky and dark in the glass, the nose emits a show stopping rush of mouth watering blueberry and black fruits. The first taste is a pleasurable attack on the senses, bursting with concentrated dark black and blue fruits, mixed with crushed stones and dark earth. Year after year, the underlying structure and minerality result in a muscular but well-balanced Cabernet. A full-bodied mid-palate reveals finely integrated tannins that lift the overall back bone of the wine and ends with a textured and seamless fruit driven finish.
