CARTER CABERNET SAUVIGNON "THREE KINGS", TO KALON VINEYARD, OAKVILLE NAPA VALLEY 2015
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon The Three Kings is a little broody at this youthful stage, offering relatively subdued blackberries and black plum notes with earth and truffles suggestions plus cigar box, black pepper and new leather. The palate is a somewhat different story, filling the mouth with exuberant earth, black fruit and spice box layers, supported by plenty of lively acidity and a firm, grainy backbone, finishing long.
NVWE Notes: This is likely the best “Three Kings” ever released. Its complex, vividly fruity, super concentrated nose offers focused dark cherry, pomegranate syrup, red currant, spiced plum, black raspberry, vanilla, toffee, baking-spice, sweet tobacco, star anise, crushed red rose and mineral scents.It proves huge in body and drenched in fruit and spice on the palate, with serious tannic grip suppressed by an ultra-long, palate-coating and luxurious finish that is layered with Cassis, pomegranate, sour cherry, purple plum, baking-spice, cedar, star anise, tobacco and toast flavors over hard mineral undercurrents. Already pleasurable for its stunning fruit, it should easily improve for ten years and be a thrill for long after.
