Sourced from the very best vineyards in the Carter portfolio including Beckstoffer ToKalon, Beckstoffer Las Piedras and Weitz Vineyard, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon showcases the very best of what Napa Valley has to offer. The various vineyard elements fuse together to create a rich, sumptuous Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon endowed with massive concentration and intensity. On the palate, this is everything you would want in a great Cabernet Sauvignon, including “dense flavors of black currants, graphite and toasted cacao undertones framed in well-integrated oak profile. This full-bodied, layered, racy style shows the purity and elegance of the 2018 vintage, not its mention its serious oomph and decadence. A wine that is both great for cellaring or drinking right now.”
Carter Cellars first vintage was in 1998 sourcing grapes from the steeply terraced Coliseum Block of the Hossfeld Vineyard. In continuing to source wine from top Napa vineyards Mark and Nils made a svelte Fortuna Block Cabernet from the ancient red volcanic soils of the Fortuna Vineyard in 1999. In 2000 Carter Cellars began a long and deeply rewarding relationship with the most iconic vineyard in the western hemisphere: the Beckstoffer portion of the original To Kalon Vineyard in Oakville. Thus began the rise of the famed and highly rated Carter Cellars Beckstoffer To Kalon Cabernet, a wine that to this day continues to receive top scores from critics worldwide.
