Carte Blanche Proprietary Red Napa Valley 2009, 750mL (WA93) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Carte Blanche Proprietary Red Napa Valley

750mL

Vintage: 2009
Region: US
Appellation: Napa
Producer: Carte Blanche

WA93
Rated 93 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2009 Proprietary Red comes across as quite sumptuous. It lacks some of the classicism of the 2008. Instead, readers will find a wine loaded with dark red fruit, smoke, tar, incense and licorice. This is bigger than the 2008 but not quite as delineated. It makes up for that with gorgeous richness and balance. The 2009 is 47% Merlot, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024.`Additional Notes from the Wine Advocate: `Proprietor Nicholas Allen and winemaker Luc Morlet make these Bordeaux-inspired reds. The wines are vinified with natural yeasts and natural bacteria for the malolactic fermentations. The Proprietary Red is a Bordeaux right bank-modeled wine made with Cabernet Franc from To Kalon, Merlot from Newton on Spring Mountain and Cabernet Sauvignon from a vineyard in Calistoga. The Cabernet Sauvignon takes its inspiration from Bordeaux`s left bank. The first vintage for Carte Blanche is 2008. dj@carteblanchewine.com` -- Antonio Galloni in Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate
