Carter Cellars Beckstoffer To Kalon The Grand Daddy 2018
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon The Grand Daddy is just about pure magic in a glass, and it will probably merit a triple-digit rating in another 4-5 years. A stunning array of blueberries, melted licorice, cassis, scorched earth, violets, and tobacco soar from the glass of this deep, saturated purple (almost blue) 2018. Gorgeously concentrated, full-bodied, packed with sweet fruit, yet still weightless and elegant on the palate, it's another magical wine from Carter Cellars. Drink bottles any time over the coming 25+ years or more.
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard The Grand Daddy has a deep garnet-purple color, barreling out of the glass with energetic notes of fresh blueberries, black raspberries, ripe black and red currants and black olives with hints of cedar chest, powdered cinnamon, pencil lead and camphor. The full-bodied palate is laden with taut, crunchy black fruit, framed by firm, ripe, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long with loads of mineral sparks.
