Carter Cellars 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.
