Carter Cellars Beckstoffer To Kalon - 'The Three Kings' 2022


Tasting Notes

From the back of the Beckstoffer To Kalon vineyard, this wine throws off an amazingly deep ruby color. Offering superb balance and concentration, it is a successful expression of both the richness and power of clone 7. With its fruit forward profile, the wine opens up immediately with spicy aromatics mixed with dark gooseberries and mixed red fruit. The palate is 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 and depth.

The History of the To Kalon Vineyard

The Beckstoffer portion of the historic original To Kalon Vineyard in the Oakville AVA was purchased from Beaulieu Vineyard in 1993. Beaulieu had purchased the property from the Crabb estate in 1940 and called it their Beaulieu Vineyard No. 4. Napa Pioneer Hamilton Crabb first planted the vineyard in 1868 and it has produced some of the Napa Valley's best red grapes ever since. Replanted after phylloxera by Beckstoffer from 1994 to 1997 to multiple clones of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc with modern trellising and closer vine spacing, the vineyard produces several luxury award winning vineyard designated wines. These vineyard designated Cabernet Sauvignon wines include Schrader Cellars, Paul Hobbs, Tor, Realm and of course, Carter Cellars.
