Carter Cellars 'Carter' Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Tasting Notes

A 100% Cabernet Sauvignon blends from all our vineyard sources, this wine showcases the very best of what Napa Valley has to offer. The various vineyard elements fuse together to create a rich, sumptuous Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon endowed with massive concentration and intensity. On the palate, this is everything you would want in a great Cabernet Sauvignon, including dense flavors of blackberry, damp earth and tobacco undertones framed in well-integrated oak profile. This full-bodied, layered, racy style shows the purity and elegance of the 2019 vintage. A wine that is both great for cellaring or drinking right now.

"Awesome Pauillac-like notes of cassis, lead pencil, burning embers, tobacco, and cedarwood all emerge from the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Carter, and it's full-bodied, concentrated, and locked and loaded on the palate. Despite its richness and concentration, it still stays lively and weightless, with an almost Graves-like sense of minerality and earthiness on the finish. It's a brilliant wine in the making."
