The 2020 ‘The Carter’ is an immense, towering wine from Carter Cellars in this vintage. This decadent wine displays a dark inky color and offers profound aromas of blueberry pie, black cherries and boysenberries which are joined by exotic spices, dark chocolate, loam, herbs and licorice that all come together. On the palate this is full-bodied, layered and opulent, with impressive concentration and depth. This doses out generous amount of dark fruits that come together with spices and dark bittersweet dark chocolate which expand through the enveloping finish. This is a massive wine from Carter Cellars with tons of power and depth, while impressive now, it should offer a drinking window that spans over a decade.
