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 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard La BAM is the largest production cuvée from this site, although there are still just a miniscule 154 cases produced. Coming from a parcel of slightly deeper soils, its saturated purple hue is followed by a brilliant perfume of crème de cassis, smoked tobacco, dark chocolate, crushed stone, and new leather. It's pure, focused, and precise aromatically and hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a terrific sense of minerality, ripe yet building tannins, and a great finish. It shows the vintage's tighter, more focused, straighter profile (this cuvée is usually one of the most approachable of the three Las Piedras releases) and deserves 4-5 years of bottle age. It's going to have 20-25 years of overall longevity. It's another stunning wine from this vineyard.
