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 blenders and winemakers -whatever it is, it gives Carter Cellars wines the ability to stir the passions and overwhelm the senses.
2021 Carter Cellars Release
The Carter Cellars 2021 vintage possesses our 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 rounded firm tannins all buttressed with balanced acidity and structure.
We are releasing ten unique and exceptional wines in 2021 – very special wines from a very special year. unique and exceptional wines for the 2021 Vintage. 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 2019, 2018, 2016, 2013 and 2012. In addition to these wines, we are thrilled to offer three highly praised Cabernets from the Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard in St. Helena: the ‘La Verdad’ from our original section on the vineyard, the ‘La BAM’, a favorite of the critics (2021 received 100 points from Jeb Dunnuck) and our smallest offering, the ‘Los Compadres’. Also, as in past years, we have crafted the following exceptional wines from world class vineyards in Oakville: the Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard Cabernet, as well as a return of ‘The Haze’, from fruit sourced primarily out of the Fortuna Vineyard from the valley floor. Finally, we are pleased to announce the return of the ‘Carter’. This wine is a masterfully crafted Cabernet which blends fruit from a variety of the vineyards from which we source. MORE DETAILS
