Sweet tobacco and blueberries with hints of blackcurrant aromas that follow through to a full body. Yet it's not big on the attack. It finishes beautifully with lightly austere tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink in 2020.
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer to Kalon The Grand Daddy is a 202-case cuvée from a block in the Beckstoffer Vineyard that is the last that Carter harvests. Black fruits galore, including blackberry, cassis, blueberry, a full-bodied nose with charcoal embers, camphor and subtle smoke, are followed by a gorgeously proportioned full-bodied wine with fabulous purity and flawless integration of acidity, wood and tannin. Drink it over the next 20+ years. (RP)
Carter's 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard The Grand Daddy is powerful, intense but also light on its feet for such a big wine. Savory herbs, tobacco, menthol, licorice and dried flowers are some of the many aromas and flavors that open up in the glass. The Grand Daddy is not a big wine by Napa Valley standards. Instead, what comes through is a distinctly silky and understated expression of To Kalon. (AG)
Distinctive for the melted black licorice, blackberry, anise and cedary road tar flavors, this adds up to a mouthful of plush Cabernet that's rich and persistent, with a long, full finish. Drink now through 2034. (JL)
