The 2018 Beckstoffer To Kalon 'The G.T.O' is an absolutely thrilling wine from Carter Cellars. This is a selection of Cabernet Sauvignon composed from Carter's best barrels out of the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard. The wine itself is utterly majestic, as it bursts open to seductive aromas of ripe blackcurrants, blueberries and crème de cassis that are joined by pencil shavings, violets and wet gravel, along with hints of fresh tobacco and licorice that all explode from the glass. The palate is just as impressive, full-bodied, polished and seamless, with a remarkable deep concentrated core that delivers layers of gorgeous ripe dark fruits which cascade on to the long expressive finish. Mark Carter has produced a serious range of wines in this vintage and the G.T.O stands out amongst the very best. There are only 25 cases made of this limited production release, available in Magnum format only.
