Blackberries, black licorice and currant leaf. Full to medium body and very fine tannins. Wonderful real Napa style. Drink in 2019 but already a joy to taste.
There are 248 cases of Carter’s 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon The Three Kings, made from clone 7 from that first-growth vineyard in Oakville. This is a supple-textured, blockbuster wine, with notes of Asian spice, licorice, espresso bean, chocolate and oodles of blackberry and cassis fruit. It is fleshy and succulent on the attack and midpalate, very concentrated with velvety tannin and a long, 45+-second finish. This is a beauty and should provide sumptuous consumption for at least another 20 years. (RP)
Pure, rich and even delicate for the size and depth, with layers of blackberry, licorice and anise flavors, light toasty oak and a pleasing suppleness and subtlety on the aftertaste that forces you to pay close attention. Drink now through 2033. (JL)
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard The Three Kings is dark, rich and unctuous. Sweet spice, menthol, licorice and dried flowers are some of the signatures in The Three Kings. This is the most open-knit and voluptuous of the Carter To Kalon Cabernets. Next to the bigger wines, the Three Kings is a bit light in structure. (JL)
