The 2018 Carter Cellars 'La Verdad' Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard and it is sensational. This opens to incredibly expressive aromatics of dark currants, plums and blueberries, which are woven together with crushed gravel, sweet pipe tobacco, dried loam and hints of fresh anise. On the palate this is simply delightful, showcasing a gorgeous full body that is beautifully polished with excellent focus and concentration. This continues to impress with its remarkable overall balance and gorgeous seamless texture that glides effortlessy through the graceful finish. This is a flat-out stunning wine that is already wide-open and drinking fabulous today, but should also continue to evolve for decades.
