PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
Nicholas Allen's family has been in the wine business for nearly a century since his great grandfather, Clarence Dillon, acquired Château Haut-Brion in 1935. He gained early exposure and genuine interest in wine from his family, which led him to forge his own path in the industry and establish his own label, Carte Blanche.

Carte Blanche represents his commitment to crafting limited, luxury wines inspired by classical French winemaking traditions devoted to the notion of “terroir.” Working with his winemaker Luc Morlet, he has selected specific vineyard sites, each with its own personality, to create wines of distinction, precision, and balance.

97 points, Jeb Dunnuck:
"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." (1/2021)

97 points, James Suckling:
"This is very intense with spices, walnuts, herbs, plums, and 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. Drinkable now, but better in two or three years." (2/2022)

97 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard is made from 100% 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." (11/2020)

97 points, Vinous:
"The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper is a huge, dense wine packed with black fruit, chocolate, leather, grilled herbs, and earthy tones. This potent, virile cabernet offers tons of character. I would give it at least a few years in bottle. This deep, plush cabernet has a ton to offer." (10/2021)
