Estate Notes

Carter Cellars' Grand Daddy Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 comes from a world-class terroir and one of the Napa's finest boutique estates. It offers stunning texture and a menagerie of dark fruits, all spice, crushed rock and polished tannin - fully engaging all the senses.

'The Grand Daddy’ Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a block of old vine clone 4 Cabernet Sauvignon, the first vintage being in 2009. These old vine clone 4 vines render Carter's most elegant wine from this vineyard, but just like great Bordeaux, this elegance is wrapped up in a cloak of raw but refined power. The wine offers a sensational amount of ripeness and texture along with generous tannins which leaves an impression of a wine that carries both old and New World characteristics.


"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard The Grand Daddy is sweet, concentrated and packed with crème de cassis, blueberry, spring flower and graphite characteristics. Full-bodied, opulent, stunningly rich and layered, this majestic wine should provide immense pleasure...

"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
