A strong effort, the dense ruby/purple-tinged 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Coliseum Block exhibits classic aromas of black currants, cigar tobacco, blueberries, and lead pencil shaving. Beautifully proportioned and full-bodied with moderately high tannins, it is still young and unevolved, so 3-4 years of bottle age is recommended. It should evolve for 20+ years.

About This Producer

Since 1998 Carter Cellars has been producing small, intimate vintages with outstanding fruit from Napa's finest vineyard sources. Mark Carter's dream of creating a world class wine label without a brick and mortar winery lead him to a partnership with Nils Venge and no small amount of critical praise. Carter Cellars produces several Cabernets and Merlots, all from fruit grown in low-yield vineyards in Napa and showcasing Beckstoffer fruit from the famous original To-Kalon Vineyard. In 2006 they founded Envy Winery to produce estate-grown wines for the first time.
