2018 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 sought after wines, this dense and ethereal Napa Cabernet Sauvignon strikes the perfect balance between power and elegance. With its extended hang time, 2018 was a very good year for the ‘O.G.’ block of Beckstoffer To Kalon. On the nose, this wine reveals gorgeous notes of blackberry liqueur, complex floral and mineral undertones all matched with an inky deep purple color. Sweet tannins integrate with a plush, persistent and prodigious palate making this a complex wine which expertly showcases Napa Valley terroir. As with prior vintages of this wine, 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 to really spread its wings.

2018 Beckstoffer To Kalon ‘The Grand Daddy’ Cabernet Sauvignon
From the very front of the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, this block produced exceptional wines in 2018 as a result of great farming and cluster thinning matched with talented winemaking and blending. These older clone 4 vines offer our most upfront, and instantly appealing wine from this vineyard. Dark blackberry fruits, earthy spice, and rich cool soil intertwine to create a lavish multi-layered wine, which 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.

2018 Beckstoffer To Kalon ‘The Three Kings’ Cabernet Sauvignon 
From the back of the Beckstoffer To Kalon vineyard, this wine throws off an amazingly deep ruby color tinged with an electric purple hue. Revealing superb balance and concentration, it is a successful expression of both the richness and power of clone 7 from this world class vineyard. With its fruit forward profile, the wine opens up immediately with floral aromatics mixed with dark currants, spices and blue/black fruit. This wines mid-palate shines, loaded with racy yet 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.

2018 Beckstoffer Las Piedras ‘La Verdad’ Cabernet Sauvignon 
One of our most highly sought after wines, the 2018 ‘La Verdad’ is ultra low production wine from our original block of stressed vines on the Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard. Inky and dark in the glass, the nose emits a show stopping rush of mouth watering blueberry and black fruits. The first taste is a pleasurable attack on the senses, bursting with concentrated dark black and blue fruits, mixed with crushed stones and dark earth. Year after year, the underlying structure and minerality result in a muscular but well-balanced Cabernet. A full-bodied mid-palate reveals finely integrated tannins that lift the overall back bone of the wine and ends with a textured and seamless fruit driven finish.

2018 Beckstoffer Las Piedras ‘La BAM’ Cabernet Sauvignon
At the foot of Spring Mountain along the banks of Sulphur Springs lies the Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard – a 22 acre site renowned for its naturally low yields and well draining soil. These slightly less stressed vines are closer to the riverbed and sit on slightly more rocky and well draining soil than the ‘La Verdad’. Like a smack in the face, ‘La BAM’, boasts a full rich bold palate of dark red and black fruits infused with graphite, wet gravel, chocolate and savory undertones. Matched with sweet firms from Darnajou and Marcel Cadet barrels, this wine ends with a lengthy prodigious finish that only gets better with age.

2018 Weitz Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
Perched above the Silverado Trail on the eastern Oakville Bench and renown for its red volcanic soil, this vineyard continues to thrill us year after year. This translucent purple wine opens with signature scents of red and black berry fruits, cassis and crushed violets. A fruit forward wine with notably plush tannins and natural acidity give this wine both concentration and a multi-dimensional quality. Considerable depth and fruit will continue to develop as the structure starts to integrate with bottle age and bring tremendous purity and allure. Decanting a few hours will benefit this wine for early drinking; cellar for 5-10 years to enjoy this wine in its prime.
