2012 Carte Blanche (Nicholas Allen wines) cabernet
I've seen these around a few LWS lately under $100 ($125 release) and wanted to try one at the wine bar with my Friday guys -we started a night early as no one had to work today. I've had prior vintages with another friend whose been on the list for years but have never seen it at retail prior. It looks like they might be clearing some back inventory.
Keep your eyes open for it particularly if you see well under $100 at some point. It's a beautifully crafted wine by Luc Morlet with great complexity and firm tannins suitable for aging. Still in its youth it should be stunning after another 5 to 10 years of cellaring.
Carte Blanche again. Just as good. Bringing a few home to bury in the back of the cellar.
