Carter Cellars

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 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.


2020 Special Offering in Wooden Box Sets

The Carter Cellars 2020 vintage possesses our signature qualities of incredible finesse and verve, alongside a deep and true representation of the vineyards from which they were sourced. While this proved to be a vexatious vintage, the grapes where harvested before the Glass Fire and showcase some of the best of what Napa has to offer in 2020: delicious ripe fruit and seasoned tannins buttressed with balanced acidity and structure.

We are releasing seven unique and exceptional wines in three different 2020 Special Wooden Box sets.  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, 2016, 2018 and 2019.In addition to these wines, we are thrilled to offer three highly praised Cabernets from the Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard in St. Helena: our very serious La Verdad, the impactful La BAM and our palate friendly, Los Compadres MORE DETAILS
