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.
