Carter Cellars Fortuna Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2016


Tasting Notes

The 2016 wine from the Fortuna Vineyard is a true expression of a great Napa Valley Cabernet from the Oakville floor - a sensual wine exudes both depth and the concentration. This extraordinary wine offers up inky jam colored hue with wonderfully sweet notes of beautiful ripe red fruit and dark plum , matched with a tannic backbone, silky palate and full-bodied creamy finish. Year after year this is considered to be one of the best values in Napa.

Map of the Fortuna Vineyard

The History of the Fortuna Vineyard

In Oakville, this 59 acre site on Napa Valley's floor has ancient red volcanic soils and alluvial cobblestone from the adjoining Vaca Mountain Range. Off the Silverado Trail, this unique sloping bench produces spicy fruit with tannic backbone and then combines with the tell-tale dust that have made Napa Valley Oakville Cabernets so famous.
