Carter Cellars’ winemaking begins with the simple idea of matching the best grapes from world-renowned vineyard sources with the unmistakable "purist" talents of their winemaker, Mike Smith. To quote Mike, "My philosophy is simple: I like to create the most natural and expressive wines California can offer. I believe in allowing the fruit to fully reveal itself in the wines, encouraging the personality and terroir of the vineyards, while showcasing itself to the fullest extent. This allows the wines to be true to their nature and brings harmony in the bottle." Winery note: "One of our most highly sought after wines, the 2017 'La Verdad' is ultra 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 youthful blueberry and black fruits. The first taste is a pleasurable attack on the senses, bursting with concentrated dark black and blue fruits, mixed with crushed stones. Year after year, the underlying structure and minerality result in a muscular but well-balanced Cabernet. A full-bodied mid-palate reveals finely integrated tannins that lift the overall back bone of the wine and ends with an opulent and seamless fruit driven finish"
