2017 Beckstoffer To Kalon ‘The O.G.’ Cabernet Sauvignon
From our original block of Beckstoffer To Kalon grapes planted to clone 337, and one of our most popular wines, this dense and ethereal Napa Cabernet Sauvignon strikes the perfect balance between opulence and elegance. In 2017 there is a rush of black cherry, cassis, dark coffee and earthly undertones matched with an inky deep dark purple color. Sweet rounded tannins and balanced acidity integrate perfectly, resulting in a concentrated intense palate and makes this a decadent complex wine with layers of texture and remarkable purity. As with the prior vintages, the structure and power of the clone 337 from the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard lends itself well to an extended decant or several years of bottle age. This wine should hit its prime in five years, yet remain cellarable for well over a decade or two.

2017 Beckstoffer To Kalon ‘The Grand Daddy’ Cabernet Sauvignon
From the very front of the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, this block produced exceptional wines in 2017 as a result of great farming and cluster thinning matched with talented winemaking. For the final year, these older clone 4 vines offer our most upfront, and instantly appealing wine from this vineyard. Dark blackberry fruits, spice , and rich cool soil intertwine to create a lavish multi-layered wine, that then leads to an enormous mid-palate buttressed perfectly by the wine’s natural acidity and gripping tannins. Offering a unique amount of ripeness and texture, this is an elegant wine wrapped up in a cloak of raw but refined power. While drinking great now, allow this wine to age and watch it reach its full potential.

2017 Beckstoffer To Kalon ‘The Three Kings’ Cabernet Sauvignon 
This wine will be very limited in 2017 as about half of its usual fruit production was left out during the fires and had to be declassified due to smoke taint. Thankfully for Carter Carters, this was the only smoke tainted fruit that we had. As in years past this wine is a successful expression of both the richness and power of clone 7 – a stalwart in Napa Valley for decades. With its opulent and fruit forward profile, the wine attacks the senses with blue and black fruit mixed with exotic and savory spices. This wines mid-palate shines, loaded with rounded firm tannins and waves of decadent fruit. Like all Carter Cellars wines, this wine is approachable immediately, but give this beautiful wine a few years in the cellar to round out and you’ll be rewarded by additional nuances for years to come.
