A well-known critic once described our wines as “swoon inducing.” While
we’re not sure exactly where this quality originates-perhaps in the earth and sun of our low yield vineyards, or in the touch of our masterful winemakers -whatever it is that gives Carter Cellars wines the ability to stir the passions and overwhelm the senses.
Carter Cellars Current Releases
The Carter Cellars 2011 vintage possesses our signature qualities of incredible finesse and verve, alongside a deep and true representation of the vineyards from which they were sourced. We were gifted with a talented winemaker, Mike Smith, who maximized the potential of the extended cool growing season and a long, mild summer.
We are releasing five unique and special wines for the 2011 vintage. From the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard we have the following: our massively-structured Beckstoffer To Kalon 'The O.G.' Cabernet, the slightly more fruit-forward Beckstoffer To Kalon ‘The Grand Daddy" Cabernet, and the rich, lush and elegant Beckstoffer To Kalon ‘The Three Kings' Cabernet. Each of these Beckstoffer To Kalons have very distinct characteristics and personalities. In addition we are thrilled to offer the Coliseum Block Cabernet and it's compatriot, the sleek Hossfeld Coliseum Red Blend, last year's highest scoring Merlot-based blend in all of Napa Valley.
