The 2019 Beckstoffer Las Piedras ‘La Verdad’ is a complete knockout. It instantly grabs your attention with its mesmerizing aromas of ripe blackcurrants, dark plums and blue fruit nuances come together with graphite, spicy tobacco, violets, licorice, chocolate powder and crushed gravel all taking shape. The palate is simply gorgeous, full-bodied and beautifully textured with finely polished tannins that result in an utterly seamless mouthfeel. This displays incredible purity and finesse that persist through the long finish which leaves behind flavors of currants, graphite, iron and dried spices. Everything works together in perfect harmony in this stunning release from Carter Cellars which is drinking incredibly well today, but should also thrive in the cellar for at least two decades. La Verdad is a small production wine with only about 5 barrels made, so don’t hesitate at the chance to get a hold of this fabulous wine.
