Carter Cellars A & J Carter Proprietary
This ultra low production unique Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot comes from hand selected fruit in our best vineyards in Napa Valley. This is a classically young Napa Bordeaux in both structure and restraint and while delicious in its youth, should be cellared. The dense flavors of currants, charcoal, and chocolate, wrapped in subtle oak define its power and finesse. On the nose, fresh lively fruit dances with spice to make a signature profile that will only improve with age.
"The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon A and J reveals a Bordeaux-like restraint and structural profile. Subtle notes of oak, mint, black currants, charcoal, chocolate, and licorice are found in this structured, full-bodied, dense, impressively built, super-fresh, lively 2006. It, too, will benefit from several years of bottle age, and should keep for two decades ."
