Carter - Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard The Three Kings
This is the best Beckstoffer Cab that I have ever the pleasure to experienced. A big, ripe, extracted, rich fruit driven Cabernet, yet a perfectly balanced Beckstoffer Cabernet. This is a winner. Highly recommended.
Carter - Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard The O.G.
R.P, gives it 94-96 points.... This is a Monster Beckstoffer Cabernet. I've tasted all of the 2013 portfolio of Carter Cellars Cabs available and this on is the best in my opinion. I like it over the "Three Kings" which R.P. gives a 97-100 points. All of the 2013's Cabs are fabulous. The O.G. is one of the best ever Napa Cabernet's I have ever tasted.
Larkmead - Cabernet Sauvignon Estate
This 2012 is special, give it a little air and it will really open up. Dark, ripe fruit, black cherry, berries, and licorice notes. One of the better Larkmead I've ever enjoyed. 94 points, this is WILL GET BETTER as it is very young! Parker gives it 93 points and he gave Caymus Anniversary 96 points? You have got to be kidding me?
Becklyn - Cabernet Sauvignon
This newcomer shows a huge flavor profile, displaying a lovely sweet floral bouquet, dark ruby purple color, nice legs on the side of the glass. Ripe berries, cassis, black licorice, bitter sweet coco and tobacco notes. This Cab is drinking nicely with a wonderful lingering finish. This is a VERY GOOD CAB with a great future ahead of it.
Winter - Cabernet Sauvignon
Dark purple to the rim, dark fruit, ripe berries and black currant. Big and dense, yet a smooth texture, with intense, dark fruit concentration. This is a winner!
