Carter Cellars 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.
