We are thrilled to offer another wine from the Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard - a 22 acre site renowned for its naturally low yields and well draining soil. Sourced from younger fruit closer to the Sulphur Springs Creek, 'Los Compadres' is a combined expression of Clone 4 and Clone 337 all planted all on Rootstock 110R - the hallmark combination of great Beckstoffer wines. Slightly more fruit forward than the other Carter Cellars Beckstoffer Las Piedras wines it showcases a full rich bold palate of dark red and black cherry fruits infused with graphite, wet gravel and clove undertones. When matched with our signature barrel program, this wine ends with a lengthy prodigious finish that will only get better with age.

From a valley floor site that never seems to get the recognition it deserves, the 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard is all varietal and reveals a dense purple hue to go with awesome aromatics of ripe black and blue fruits, smoke tobacco, graphite, darker chocolate, and damp earth. These carry to a full-bodied, deep, concentrated 2021 delivering remarkable purity, a layered, rich, mouth-filling texture, ample tannins, and a great finish. It shows the structured, powerful style of the vintage and actually reminds me a great vintage of La Mission Haut-Brion. It needs to be forgotten for 4-5 years and is going to push the upper limits of the scale at maturity.
