Carter Cellars Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Oakville|
From a great valley floor site in Oakville that lies just south of Beckstoffer To Kalon, this wine shows a deep and profound purple color. Notes of lively blue fruits, allspice, graphite and toasty oak all leap from the glass. An opulent and full-bodied wine, it shows ideal balance on the palate - a mixture of great fruit, rounded tannins and natural acidity that results in a lengthy finish with a savory quality. This wine is pure pleasure and will surely be a favorite in your cellar over time.
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper, a new wine in this range, is terrific. It has all the savoriness that is such a signature of this southern sector in Oakville, along with the textural richness readers have come to expect from Mark Carter. I love the energy and vibrancy here. The Hopper Cabernet is a great addition to this lineup. Don't miss it.
Carter's 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard delivers complex fruit notes-black raspberries, cassis and blueberries-balanced against deep savory shadings-mocha, tar and black olives. Those are all easily carried on the full-bodied palate by a rich, velvety mouthfeel and ample length on the finish. This should drink well for a couple of decades.
