Nicholas Allen’s great-grandfather, Clarence Dillon, acquired the legendary Chateau Haut-Brion in 1935. Nicholas grew up in a family with a thirst for fine wines leading him to create Nicholas Allen Wines & the Carte Blanche brand in 2007. His goal was to produce superior old-world-styled wines in California, so he turned to well-respected viticulturist and winemaker Luc Morlet to help him select vineyards with a precise sense of place.

Helen Keplinger joined Carte Blanche as their winemaker in 2014, bringing extensive experience ranging from apprenticeships at Paradigm and Fiddlehead Cellars in Australia to making wine for Cellers Melis in Priorat, Spain, then Bryant Family Vineyards in Napa Valley. Helen’s commitment to developing exceptional wines from grapes grown on some of the world’s finest terroirs is highly apparent with this exceptional triple 97 Point 2018 Carte Blanche Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon.

Description

2018 CARTE BLANCHE BECKSTOFFER MISSOURI HOPPER VINEYARD CABERNET SAUVIGNON  

“…Featuring a deep garnet-purple color, it sashays out of the glass with gregarious notions of baked plums, warm cassis and blueberry compote with suggestions of kirsch, dusty soil and Indian spices. The palate is full-bodied and laden with bright, lively, energetic black fruits, supported with firm, super ripe tannins and finishing on a persistent exotic spice note…”

“This is very intense with spices, walnuts, herbs and plums, as well as blackcurrants. It’s full-to medium-bodied with agility, freshness and ultra fine tannins that are juicy and flavorful. Lots of fruit, but it remains in-check and fresh…”
97 Points
“…the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard comes from a great site in Oakville that continues to fly slightly under the radar yet produces brilliant wines. Incredible cassis, graphite, damp earth, and violet notes emerge from the glass, and this full-bodied beauty offers plenty of high-end oak, ripe, seamless tannins, and flawless balance. It just screams of Cabernet. There’s no harm drinking bottles today, but I’d nevertheless recommend a solid 4-5 years of bottle age. It should keep for two-plus decades.”
