Carter Cellars 2015 Cabernet Beckstoffer To-Kalon "The Grand Daddy" 96+ Points

$169.99

Robert Parker 96+ Points: "Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard The Grand Daddy features expressive cassis, blackberry tart and mocha notes with hints of pencil shavings, tilled soil and charcuterie plus a touch of menthol. Full-bodied, concentrated and laden with earthy-accented black fruits, it has a velvety texture, a hint of pepper and an herbs lift on the finish."

 

Winery Notes: "From the very front of the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, this block produced exceptional wines in 2015 due to exceptional farming, perfectly balanced cropping and significant hang time. Year after year, these older clone 4 vines offer our most upfront, instantly appealing and massive wine from this vineyard. Blackberry fruits, licorice, and truffle mingle to create a lavish multi-layered wine, offering an enormous mid-palate buttressed perfectly by the wine's natural acidity and gripping tannins. Offering a unique amount of ripeness and texture, this is an elegant wine wrapped up in a cloak of raw but refined power. While drinking great now, allow this wine to age and watch it reach its full potential."
