Rating:|Why pay less?| That must be the motto of the grower, Andy Beckstoffer, who is the proprietor of the great first-growth vineyard, To Kalon, in Oakville. His prices are approaching $25,000 a ton, so it is hard to imagine anyone buying that fruit making a profit, unless they're getting $350.00-$500.00 per bottle for their wines. Nevertheless, he's got a great site and, to his credit, it is farmed impeccably. The Carter Cellars 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon comes in at a rather modest 14.1% natural alcohol, which probably reflects the cool 2005 growing season. At more than $200.00 a bottle, this may be one of the last Beckstoffer To Kalon Cabernets at that price point, and one probably impossible to find except in the auction arena. This wine just has it all - floral notes, crA?A?A?A?A?A?A?Ame de cassis

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.
