At the foot of Spring Mountain along the banks of Sulphur Springs lies the Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard - a 22-acre site renowned for its naturally low yields and well-draining 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’. Like a smack in the face, 'La BAM', boasts a full rich bold palate of red and black fruits matched with graphite, wet gravel, chocolate and savory spices. Matched with sweet firms from Darnajou barrels, this wine ends with a lengthy prodigious finish that must be tasted to be believed.
Thanks to the
winemaking talent of Mike Smith, the Carter Cellars 2017 vintage possesses their
signature qualities of incredible finesse and verve, alongside a deep and true
representation of the vineyards from which they were sourced. These wines
showcase some of the best of what Napa has to offer: delicious ripe fruit and
seasoned tannins all buttressed with balanced acidity and structure.
