Carter Cellars Beckstoffer To Kalon The Three Kings Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
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.
