Carter Cellars Beckstoffer To Kalon - 'The Grand Daddy' 2020


Tasting Notes

From the very front of the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, this block produced exceptional wines in 2020 as a result of great farming and cluster thinning matched with talented winemaking. These Clone 4 vines offer our most upfront, and instantly appealing wine from this vineyard. Blackcurrant fruits, dark coffee, and earthy minerality intertwine to create a lavish multi-layered wine resulting in an enormous mid-palate buttressed perfectly by the wine's natural acidity and impactful tannins. Offering a unique amount of ripeness and texture, this is an elegant wine wrapped up in a cloak of raw but refined power.

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.
