Tasted the 2007 & 2008 Carter Cellars Beckstoffer To Kalon Cabernet.
Thoughts? I enjoy the Carters much more than most Napa Cabs- more refined, more balanced. But I like the winemaker Mike Smith's work with his own label- Myriad- even more.
Thoughts...posted under wrong title.
As you may know, the overall style shift in Napa Cabernet left my palate 10+- years ago. This said, I have tasted a few wines recently offering a more balanced profile, and these two would fall under that category I'm thinking.
Both were showing that wonderful Napa fruit, but also offering more than just fruit, and not too flabby or hot.
I have not tried Myriad wines that I can recall.
Will have to share a bottle of Myriad with you... If more Napa cab was made like it, I think your palette would fall in love with Napa all over again. Glad you enjoyed the Carters!
