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 touch of our masterful winemakers -whatever it is that gives Carter Cellars wines the ability to stir the passions and overwhelm the senses.


Carter Cellars Current Pre-Release

The Carter Cellars 2012 vintage possesses our signature qualities of incredible finesse and verve, alongside a deep and true representation of the vineyards from which they were sourced. In 2012 we were fortunate to receive many gifts including an idyllic wine growing season and flawless harvest that we matched with our talented winemaker, Mike Smith. The resulting wines showcase some of the best of what Napa has to offer: delicious ripe fruit and seasoned tannins all buttressed with balanced acidity and structure.

We are releasing seven unique and exceptional wines in the 2012 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 and are sure to be well received by critics and fans alike. In addition to these wines, we are thrilled to offer three Cabernets from absolutely world class vineyards: the Coliseum Block from the hillside of Soda Canyon, the Weitz Vineyard from the Oakville Bench, and the Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard from St. Helena.
