@Paul Treadway @Ryan Callahan @Christine Forgive the late posts!! We opened this bad boy on Saturday at a great Italian restaurant on the island of Palm Beach called Trevini's. I decanted both bottles this evening for 2 hours, re bottled and brought them to the restaurant. This showed very, very well but was not the WOTN. This is a great wine and is actually drinking very well right now but it didn't quite Wow me as much as the GTO they make. Big fruit., nice oak, strong finish. A very solid wine. Great floral notes on the 👃. A superb value for a To Kalon wine. I love Carter wines!!! Opening anything from their lineup is a treat.

2.5 hour decant. Vivid purple color. Bright black and blue fruit on the nose. Sweet tobacco, leather, cedar, blackberry. Silky texture, with a long finish. Mike Smith is a wizard with BTK fruit. Still a baby; acidity will carry it 10-15 more years.

Corked very disappointed. Tasted blind next to a Schrader RBS. I'll guess I will have to pass 2014 Carter BTK.

After a 6 hour decant this wine is luscious. Similar style to Bevan. Mike Smith and Russell Bevan are rock stars.
