A great example of the vintage at its best, the 2012 Proprietary Red Wine exudes richness and voluptuousness. A host of sweet red cherry, rose petal, mint and spices notes open up, with expressive aromatics that add a gorgeous top register. The positive reputation of the vintage is built on wines like this that offer tremendous radiance and near term appeal. This is a gorgeous wine from Carte Blanche and winemaker Luc MorletAntonia Galloni - Vinous Media 94
Carte Blanche wines are produced with a generations-old commitment to creating limited, hand-crafted, fine wine. Hands on viticulture, vineyard management, and classical winemaking adapted to northern California are the foundation of these wines. We have secured long-term contracts for our proprietary vineyard blocks, which allows for year-round, controlled farming.
Carte Blanche wines represent the vintage, the grape varietal, and the land on which they are grown. Whether we produce a blend, a single varietal wine, or a vineyard-designated wine, our sole discretion and freedom in each vintage allows us to create the finest wine possible.
