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.
Carter Cellars 2017 Release
The Carter Cellars 2017 vintage possesses our signature qualities of incredible finesse and verve, alongside a deep and true representation of the vineyards from which they were sourced. Theses 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 ten unique and exceptional wines for the 2017 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 the perfect 100 point scores we received in 2012, 2013, and 2016. In addition to these wines, we are thrilled to offer two highly praised Cabernets from the Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard in St. Helena (100 pts and 99+ points in 2016). Additional we have crafted the following exceptional wines from truly world class vineyards: the Weitz Vineyard Cabernet from the eastern Oakville Bench, the Hossfeld Coliseum Red Blend from the hillside of Soda Canyon, as well as the Fortuna Vineyard Cabernet from the valley floor in Oakville. Finally, we are pleased to announce the return of the ‘Carter’. This is a masterfully crafted wine of 100% Cabernet, blended from the vineyards from which we source. MORE DETAILS
