Carter‘Weitz Vineyard’ Cabernet Sauvignon 2019- Special Priced 3-Pack
From high up on the eastern Oakville Bench and renowned for its red volcanic soil, this translucent purple wine opens with signature scents of red and black berry fruits, cassis, and crushed violets. You might know of Weitz Vineyard as it is the single vineyard used to produce Maybach Materium and has been a go-to grower vineyard for those fortunate enough to have been moved up on the waitlist to gain access to their fruit. Also known as the Leopoldina Vineyard, it rests on 62 acres, high on the Oakville Bench above some of the most famous vineyards in the world. Characterized by fractured volcanic rocks and degraded boulders, the scarcity of soil forces the vines to struggle and naturally controls fruit production. The fruit itself is renowned for its profound structure, elegant rich texture, and lingering acidity and minerality. “More pure cassis, graphite, chalky minerality, and tobacco leaf notes emerge from the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Weitz Vineyard, a rich, concentrated, beautifully balanced yet powerful Cabernet from this estate. I love its purity of fruit, and it has nicely integrated acidity, plenty of tannins, and outstanding length. It's a serious, impressive 2019 that deserves 3-4 years of bottle age and will have 20-25 years of overall longevity.” – Jeb Dunnuck.
Carter Cellars first vintage was in 1998 sourcing grapes from the steeply terraced Coliseum Block of the Hossfeld Vineyard. In continuing to source wine from top Napa vineyards Mark and Nils made a svelte Fortuna Block Cabernet from the ancient red volcanic soils of the Fortuna Vineyard in 1999. In 2000 Carter Cellars began a long and deeply rewarding relationship with the most iconic vineyard in the western hemisphere: the Beckstoffer portion of the original To Kalon Vineyard in Oakville. Thus began the rise of the famed and highly rated Carter Cellars Beckstoffer To Kalon Cabernet, a wine that to this day continues to receive top scores from wine critics.
