Another tour de force is the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon which checks in as 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc, most of which is from the Missouri Hopper vineyard. Aged 20 months in 100% new French oak, this beauty boasts a saturated purple color to go with notes of crème de cassis, white chocolate, white flowers, and graphite. Deep, full-bodied, with great intensity, it needs 4-5 years of cellaring and will keep for two decades.

A totally striking wine, Carte Blanche's 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is every bit as good from bottle as it was from barrel. Black cherry, graphite, earthiness, tobacco and licorice all give the wine its savory personality. Rich, voluptuous and racy, the 2014 offers superb depth in an opulent, flamboyant style that will be easy to enjoy with minimal cellaring.

A rich, potent effort, with tiers of red berry, currant and raspberry flavors that are fresh and vivid. Ends with a long, persistent finish. Best from 2019 through 2030. 400 cases made.
