From the back of the Beckstoffer To Kalon vineyard, this wine throws off an amazingly deep ruby color tinged with an electric purple hue. Revealing superb balance and concentration, it is a successful expression of both the richness and power of clone 7 from this world class vineyard. With its fruit forward profile, the wine opens up immediately with floral aromatics mixed with dark currants, spices and blue/black fruit. This wines mid-palate shines, 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 for years to come.

Another release from this great vineyard, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard The Three Kings comes from a single block and is all clone 7. This rocking wine is pure To Kalon with its huge, monster bouquet of crème de cassis, spiced plums, flowery incense, tobacco, and cedar pencil notes. It's always a big, rich wine, yet it still shows balance, elegant, fine tannins, and a blockbuster styled finish. It's another magical Cabernet from this team that can be enjoyed any time over the coming 25 years or more.

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon The Three Kings opens with bold, expressive scents of fresh red and black plums, black raspberries, redcurrants and dried Mediterranean herbs with hints of pencil lead, damp soil and tree bark. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is chock-full of lively red and black berry flavors, supported by grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing with a peppery kick.
