Carter Cellars 'Carter' Cabernet Sauvignon 2018


Tasting Notes

Sourced from the very best vineyards in our portfolio, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon 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 black currants, graphite and toasted cacao undertones framed in well-integrated oak profile. This full-bodied, layered, racy style shows the purity and elegance of the 2018 vintage, not its mention its serious oomph and decadence. A wine that is both great for cellaring or drinking right now.

"A killer effort, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Carter offers that rare, magical mix of opulence, power, elegant, and freshness that you rarely come across, offering a kaleidoscope-like array of crème de cassis, toasted spice, dried violets, blackberries, smoked tobacco, and a distinct sense of minerality, it’s a beast of a wine on the palate that somehow stays beautifully balanced, elegant, and seamless. It’s impossible to resist today yet should cruise for two decades."
