Carter Cellars

A well-known critic once described our wines as “swoon inducing.” While
we’re not sure exactly where this quality originates -perhaps in the earth and sun of our low yield vineyards, or in the hands of our masterful winemakers -whatever it is, it gives Carter Cellars wines the ability to stir the passions and overwhelm the senses.


2016 Special Offering in Wooden Box Sets

The Carter Cellars 2016 vintage possesses our signature qualities of finesse and verve, alongside a deep and true representation of the vineyards from which they were sourced. For the fifth year in a row, we were fortunate to have a superb growing season and flawless harvest that we matched with talented winemaking. The resulting wines showcase some of the best of what Napa has to offer: delicious ripe fruit and firm tannins, all buttressed with balanced acidity and structure.

We are releasing seven unique and exceptional wines in three different 2016 Special Wooden Box sets. From the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard we have the following: our massively-structured Beckstoffer To Kalon 'The O.G.' Cabernet, the slightly more fruit-forward Beckstoffer To Kalon ‘The Grand Daddy" Cabernet, and the rich, lush and elegant Beckstoffer To Kalon ‘The Three Kings' Cabernet. Each of these Beckstoffer To Kalons have very distinct characteristics and personalities. Moreover we have also masterfully crafted another Beckstoffer To Kalon 'The G.T.O.' from the very best barrels out of the vineyard - aiming to replicate a perfect 100 point score we received in 2012 and 2013. In addition to these wines, we are thrilled to offer two highly praised Cabernets from the Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard in St. Helena, and one Cabernet from the Weitz Vineyard from the eastern Oakville Bench  MORE DETAILS

Carter Cellars in the Press

Carter Cellars received Three 100 point Scores from Robert Parker in The Wine Advocate (December 2015) in 2013. Perhaps the notes we were most proud of was, "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon The G.T.O., short of any meaningful description, is simply one of the most profound and extraordinary Cabernet Sauvignons I have ever tasted in Napa Valley, and that’s saying something, given the extravagant cascade of great, great wines that have appeared in 2012 and 2013. This has it all. It’s like taking Chateau Latour and reducing it to the essence of that site, combined with the incredible purity, crème de cassis and blackberry fruit of the To Kalon Vineyard. This wine transcends reality -- a mind-boggling effort that every wine lover deserves to taste once in their life. A true bucket list Cabernet Sauvignon, available only in magnum and obviously very limited, it’s a tour de force, a majestic achievement and a showcase for what Napa is increasingly doing.” MORE DETAILS
