Carter Cellars Beckstoffer To Kalon 'The O.G.' 2020

Tasting Notes

From our original block of Beckstoffer To Kalon grapes planted to clone 337, this dense and ethereal Napa Cabernet Sauvignon strikes the perfect balance between power and elegance. In 2020 there is a rush of dark fruits, cassis, dark coffee and earthly undertones matched with an inky deep dark purple color. Sweet rounded tannins and balanced acidity integrate perfectly, resulting in a concentrated and plush palate that makes this a decadent complex wine with layers of texture and remarkable purity on the finish. As with the prior vintages, the structure and power of the clone 337 from the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard lends itself well to an extended decant.

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.
