Carter Cellars Beckstoffer To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon - 'The Grand Daddy'

Due to perfectly balanced yields and just the amount of hang time, this To Kalon block produced exceptional wines in 2012. These old clone 4 vines rendered our most elegant wine from this vineyard, but just like great Bordeaux, this elegance is wrapped up in a cloak of raw but refined power. Crème de cassis, licorice, tobacco and spice cake aromas mingle with a lavish multi-layered wine... MORE DETAILS

Carter Cellars Weitz Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

This is the inaugural release of Carter Cellar's Weitz Vineyard Cabernet. The wine is deep purple to the rim and opens with signature scents of blackberry fruit, cassis & mocha. Notably plush tannins and natural acidity are coupled with a distinct minerality from the heavy graveled soils. In the mid-palate rich blueberry, chocolate covered cherries and barrel spice combine to make this a powerhouse. MORE DETAILS

Carter Cellars Beckstoffer Las Piedras Cabernet Sauvignon

With naturally low yields and gentle slopes, Beckstoffer Las Piedras is a perfect environment to grow great Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Dark crimson with a violet tinge, scents of black cherry pie, flint, Kona coffee and tobacco emanate from the glass. A full-bodied mid-palate preludes a rush of finely grained tannins that lift the overall back bone of the wine into a finish abundant with blue fruits, and currants. MORE DETAILS

Carter Cellars Hossfeld Blend

The 2011 season proved to be an ideal vintage to produce a predominately Merlot based red blend. This vineyard’s rocky and stressed soils combined with its orientation to the sun were a beautiful match for a mild vintage. Dark crimson in color, it has great clarity and is joined by aromas of crushed raspberries, chocolate, and spices. MORE DETAILS

Heralding from the famous Truchard vineyard in Carneros (Napa side), this old vine head trained Merlot reaches levels of concentration not normally found from this region. Crystallized dark raspberry fruit intermixed with baking spices and hints of leather form a base of flavors. MORE DETAILS

Carter Cellars Revilo Cabernet Sauvignon

This vineyard sits within a stone’s throw of some very well known St. Helena vineyards and it shows why with an immediate attack of the senses. A dark ruby color leads a nose that is full and rich with dark fruit galore soaring from the glass alongside a slight earthiness and hints of pie crust. MORE DETAILS
