A signature cabernet sourced entirely from Las Piedras. Known for its gravely soil, this Beckstoffer Heritage vineyard traces its roots back to the original Mexican land grants more than 150 years ago. Powerful with a lingering finish.
96 Points, The Wine Advocate – “The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras Single Vineyard is delicious wine with beautiful cedar wood, crème de cassis, blackberry, licorice, and a touch of camphor and incense. The wine is full-bodied, powerful (15% natural alcohol), with a multilayered mouthfeel and skyscraper-like structure and intensity. This is a beauty, and a top, top wine of the vintage. Drink it over the next 25 to 30 years.”
94 Points, Wine Enthusiast – “A stunning effort from Beckstoffer’s famously gravelly site, this is a 100% varietal wine from one clone, made in a tiny amount. Exquisite aromas of blackberry and leather surround a velvety texture and spiky acidity, the tannins integrated and lengthy, with room to grow over time. Powerfully full bodied, this is a classic representation of the valley in expansive celebration of a ridiculously good vintage. Drink now through 2023.”
