Estate Notes

Carter Cellars' Beckstoffer To Kalon 'The O.G.' 2012 is a dense, complex and ethereal Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. It expertly showcases Napa Valley terroir through the structure and power of the clone 337 from the 'Beckstoffer To Kalon' Vineyard.

The Beckstoffer portion of the historic original 'To Kalon' vineyard in the Oakville AVA was purchased from the great Beaulieu Vineyard in 1993. Napa Pioneer Hamilton Crabb first planted the vineyard in 1868 and it has produced some of the Napa Valley's best red wine producing grapes ever since. Replanted after phylloxera by Beckstoffer from 1994 to 1997 to multiple clones of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc with modern trellising and closer vine spacing, the vineyard produces several luxury award winning vineyard designated wines.

"One of my favorite tiny boutique wineries in Napa Valley is Carter Cellars. They have been on a fabulous qualitative roll lately, and there are high expectations for the 2012s and 2013s. I can’t say enough about these offerings from Carter Cellars." Robert Parker
