At the foot of Spring Mountain along the banks of Sulphur Springs Creek lies the Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard - a 22 acre site renowned for its naturally low yields and gravelly loam soil. These slightly less stressed vines are closer to the riverbed and sit on slightly more rocky and well-draining soil than the 'La Verdad' showcasing the vineyard's unique minerality. Like a smack in the face, 'La BAM', boasts a full rich bold palate of pure fruits infused with graphite, exotic spices and ample earthy undertones. Matched with sweet firm tannins from the best French barrels, this wine ends with a lengthy prodigious finish that will only get better with age.

The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard La BAM comes from a top site outside of Saint Helena and is all Clone 4 Cabernet from a center parcel in the vineyard. It's a ripe, soft, seductive wine offering loads of blue fruits, tobacco, bouquet garni, and violet aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied and seamless on the palate, I don't think it matches the 2018, but it's still a rare mix of power and elegance, with a terrific sense of minerality on the finish.
