Carter Cellars 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.
