Carter Cellars Beckstoffer To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon - 'The Three Kings'

This wine will be very limited in 2017 as about half of its usual fruit production was left out during the fires and had to be declassified due to smoke taint. Thankfully for Carter Carters, this was the only smoke tainted fruit that we had. As in years past this wine is a successful expression of both the richness and power of clone 7 – a stalwart in Napa Valley for decades MORE DETAILS
