One of our most highly sought after wines, the 2021 'La Verdad' is an extremely low production wine from our original block of stressed vines on the Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard. Inky and dark in the glass, the nose emits a show stopping rush of mouth-watering black cherry and blue fruits. Its palate bursts forth with concentrated dark black and blue fruits, mixed with crushed earth and spicy floral undertones. The underlying structure and minerality result in a muscular, yet well-balanced Cabernet. A full-bodied mid-palate reveals finely integrated rounded tannins that lift the wine and ends with a textured and lengthy finish.

In comparison to the Los Compadres, the 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard La Verdad is darker, more closed, and reserved, yet is clearly loaded with potential. Ripe blue fruits, scorched earth, darker chocolate, green tobacco, baking spices, and beautiful spring flower notes define the aromatics, and it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a seamless, pure, graceful mouthfeel, ultra-fine tannins, and a gorgeous finish. This is clearly a more elegant, nuanced expression of the cuvée from Bevan that benefits from a decant if drinking any time soon. It will ideally be given 4-5 years of bottle age and will have 2-3 decades of overall longevity.
