Winemaker Notes

The nose reveals ripe, dark fruits of blackberry and cassis with background hints of black cherry, mocha and molasses. On the palate, the texture is silky and the attack reveals the deep core of the wine. Velvety tannins showcase black currant, cassis, dried herbs and graphite with high notes of black cherry. Bittersweet chocolate, asphalt and tobacco linger on the finish. Ample structure of fine grain tannins will allow for cellar aging.

Critical Acclaim

Wine Spectator
This pure red delivers ripe plum and red berry fruit, offering notes of crushed rock, loamy dried herbs and cedar. Ends with chewy tannins, showing an impressive push of flavors on the finish.

Carte Blanche wines are produced with a generations-old commitment to creating limited, hand-crafted, fine wine. Per the Winemaker, Luc Morlet, Neo-Classical winemaking is the approach to marry terroir and tradition. Hands on viticulture, vineyard management, and classical French 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.

Reaching up California's coastline and into its valleys north of San Francisco, the North Coast AVA includes six counties: Marin, Solano, Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino and Lake. While Napa and Sonoma enjoy most of the glory, the rest produce no shortage of quality wines in an intriguing and diverse range of styles.

Climbing up the state's rugged coastline, the chilly Marin County, just above the City and most of Sonoma County, as well as Mendocino County on the far north end of the North Coast successfully grow cool-climate varieties like Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and in some spots, Riesling. Inland Lake County, on the other hand, is considerably warmer, and Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc produce some impressive wines with affordable price tags.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
