Carter Cellars Hossfeld Blend

The 2012 season proved to be an ideal vintage to produce a predominately Merlot based red blend. This vineyard’s rocky and stressed soils combined with its orientation to the sun were a beautiful match for a mild vintage. Dark crimson in color, it has great clarity and is joined by aromas of crushed raspberries, chocolate, and spices. MORE DETAILS

This vineyard sits within a stone’s throw of some very well known St. Helena vineyards and it shows why with an immediate attack of the senses.
