Cabernet & Cabernet Blends
Red Table Wine
Carter Cellars’ winemaking begins with the simple idea of matching the best grapes from world-renowned vineyard sources with purist and non-interventionist winemaking. Under their grower’s watchful eyes and experienced hands, the cultivation of their grapes is an arduous dance that ensures that the grapes they use are optimal for creating their limited production, high quality wines.
A low-production, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon blend from the top Carter vineyard sources, this wine showcases the very best of what Napa Valley has to offer. The various vineyard elements fuse to create a rich, sumptuous Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon endowed with massive concentration and intensity.
This full-bodied, layered, racy style shows the purity and elegance of the vintage. A wine that is both great for cellaring or drinking right now.
“The 2020 ‘The Carter’ is an immense, towering wine from Carter Cellars in this vintage. This decadent wine displays a dark inky color and offers profound aromas of blueberry pie, black cherries and boysenberries which are joined by exotic spices, dark chocolate, loam, herbs and licorice that all come together. On the palate this is full-bodied, layered and opulent, with impressive concentration and depth. This doses out generous amount of dark fruits that come together with spices and dark bittersweet dark chocolate which expand through the enveloping finish. This is a massive wine from Carter Cellars with tons of power and depth, while impressive now, it should offer a drinking window that spans over a decade.”

“As always, the 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon Carter comes from a blend of a selection of the single vineyards. It has a lush, rounded, mouth-filling, full-bodied style revealing good tannins, some smoky, mineral nuances, lots of kirsch and cassis fruits, and outstanding length.”
