One of the top regarded sites in the world for Cabernet Sauvignon is the To Kalon Vineyard in Oakville. It has been responsible for some of the most important California wines released in the last 5 years. Carter gets only enough fruit to make about 4 barrels of this wine.
The pedigree of the vineyard is immediately evident in the polished and densely packed nose showing earthy black olive, dark chocolate and tightly intertwined dark fruit flavors. This wine is a long term proposal needing at least four years to begin showing everything it has.
