The 2017 wine from the Fortuna Vineyard is a true expression of a great Napa Valley Cabernet from the Oakville floor - a wine exudes both depth and concentration yet remains pure and balanced. This extraordinary wine offers up a dark inky hue, matched with wonderful sweet notes of beautiful ripe red fruit and dark plum. On the palate, it has a full-bodied, creamy finish paired with a tannic backbone and firm tannins. Year after year this is one of the best values in Napa.
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.
