In its third vintage, the Schrader LPV is truly coming into its own. A combination of incredible weather mixed with a deeper knowledge of the Beckstoffer Las Piedras vineyard has lead to this remarkable vintage of Schrader LPV. The entry of this wine offers a luxurious wave of deep, dark black and blue fruit aromas and flavors woven with layers of stunning crushed rock minerality and elegant notes of lead pencil shavings, loamy soil, sweet tobacco, incense, and forest floor. The wine is tremendously complex, beautifully balanced, and offers an expansive Cabernet profile.

Wine SpectatorOffers a powerful, extracted, high-torque core of zesty blackberry, wild berry, anise, licorice and crushed rock flavors. Sails a steady course once underway, ending where it starts, with a dense mix of complex earth and berry notes. Best from 2020 through 2033. 650 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard Lpv comes from clone 337. This is a rather earthy style for a Schrader wine, with less drama and flamboyance, but great fruit, a more meaty, dusty style with underbrush as well as blackcurrants, with spicy oak. It's dense, full-bodied and promises to age nicely for 20 more years.
