Carte Blanche, Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper , Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, 2019

Sale price£250.00


Carte Blanche is a new find for us, and we have been mightily impressed. The proprietor is Nicholas Allen, whose family own Ch. Haut-Brion – he’s decided to make his own side-project. First laid out by Luc Morlet and then carried on by Helen Keplinger, the winemaking is top-notch and the sourcing absolutely amazing. We were seriously impressed by all the wines we tried.

“The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard epitomizes the current state of plush, valley-floor Napa Cabernet. From a famous Oakville site nestled up against the Mayacamas, it's 100% Cabernet Sauvignon (Clones 4 and 337) yet wonderfully lush and velvety. Cassis and black cherry fruit is cosseted by 100% new French oak, adding gentle vanilla and cedar nuances on the nose, while the full-bodied palate is really deep and intense yet manages to be soft and elegant on the long, mouthwatering finish.”

97 Points, Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate
