2013 Carter "Beckstoffer To Kalon - The Grand Daddy" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1266753 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark As for the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard The Grand Daddy, I’d love to say that we seem to be at that three-digit magical number again. Unbelievable notes of road tar, truffle, blackberry, cassis and charcoal embers soar from the glass of this inky purple-colored wine. Stunningly full-bodied, rich and multi-dimensional, it’s another skyscraper constructed by the genius of Carter Cellars. This is unreal stuff. Drink it over the next 30+ years. (RP) 98+ Inner quote mark (12/2015)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Unusually creamy and expressive for a young wine from this site, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard The Grand Daddy is striking. Inky blue/black fruit, cloves, new leather, lavender, sage and mint are all exquisitely layered throughout. Even with all of its obvious intensity, the 2013 remains remarkably detailed for such a big wine. Next to the other To Kalon Cabernets in this range, the Grand Daddy shows a slightly more delicate and nuanced expression of this storied Oakville site. (AG) Inner quote mark (10/2015)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Young and unbridled up front, with a vibrant core of acidity and taut dark berry, this quickly opens and spreads, fanning out with floral scents and tiers of blackberry, wild berry, subtle herb and spice. (JL) Inner quote mark (10/2016)
