2012 Carter "Beckstoffer To Kalon - The O.G." Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $220)

SKU #1200280 92-95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright ruby. Knockout nose combines cassis, boysenberry, violet, spices, mocha and tobacco. Plush, sweet and fat with fruit; suggests an almost roasted ripeness to its kirsch and spice flavors without coming across as stewy. Really compellingly rich and powerful wine with the serious tannic clout to support a long life in bottle. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2014)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The sensational 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard The O.G. boasts classic notes of crème de cassis, licorice, incense and a whiff of new oak. Full-bodied with ripe tannin, adequate acidity and beautiful exuberance and personality, it should be drunk over the next 10-15 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2014)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Amazingly complex, dense and structured, with a framework of dusty, mineral-laced tannins and a similarly tight and dense core of flavors that echo the dark berry and earthy elements. (JL) Inner quote mark (10/2015)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard The O.G. is the most delicate, layered and silky of Mark Carter's three Cabernets from Andy Beckstoffer's To-Kalon vineyard. Floral, lifted and precise, the O.G. captures the essence of Clone 337 in its silky fruit and open, caressing personality. All the elements are very nicely balanced. Drink through 2032. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2014)
