Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 88

The only 2006 that seems austere is the elegant 2006 Hossfeld Coliseum Proprietary Red. A dark ruby/plum-hued offering, it reveals sweet red and black fruit characteristics intermixed with notes of crushed rocks and floral undertones. With noticeable tannin, and moderate concentration, I would opt for drinking this 2006 over the next 10-12 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.

Wine Varietal: Bordeaux Blend


Six varieties are permitted to be used in a red Bordeaux blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and, less frequently, Carmenere. Each lends a specific characteristic to the finished blends, most of which are dominated by large percentages of either Cabernet Sauvignon, which brings aromatics and age-ability, or Merlot, which adds softness and body. In the Bordeaux region, Cabernet blends are found on the Left Bank and Merlot on the Right.
