Carter Cellars Beckstoffer To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Tasting Notes

Carter Cellars has been releasing exquisite wines from the world renowned Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard since 2000. The 2007 vintage produced another stunner with dark cherry and cassis aromatics integrated with mocha and oak notes. Dense cherry and blackberry fruit explode on the palate and the acidity remains balanced.

"Full-bodied and intense, ending with black licorice-laced, mouthcoating tannins. A youngster in need of cellaring."96 Points ~ Wine Enthusiast

" Its inky/blue/purple color is accompanied by a tight, but promising aromatic display of spring flowers, licorice, new oak, and blue and black fruits."94+ Points ~ Robert Parker

The History of the To Kalon Vineyard

The Beckstoffer portion of the historic original To Kalon Vineyard in the Oakville AVA was purchased from Beaulieu Vineyard in 1993. Beaulieu had purchased the property from the Crabb estate in 1940 and called it their Beaulieu Vineyard No. 4. Napa Pioneer Hamilton Crabb first planted the vineyard in 1868 and it has produced some of the Napa Valley's best red grapes ever since. Replanted after phylloxera by Beckstoffer from 1994 to 1997 to multiple clones of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc with modern trellising and closer vine spacing, the vineyard produces several luxury award winning vineyard designated wines. These vineyard designated Cabernet Sauvignon wines include Schrader Cellars, Paul Hobbs, Provenance, Realm and of course, Carter Cellars.
