($75; a merlot-based wine from a rocky site in Soda Canyon Bright, full ruby. Scented nose offers black raspberry and licorice, with some suggestions of superripe fruit. A sweet, fat, dark berry fruit bomb on the palate, with a strong component of oak (90% new, all French). Turns a bit tough on the finish, with clenched tannins calling for several years of patience. (My early look at the blended 2008 version of this wine turned up another fruit bomb, but this one with good floral lift and distinctly sweeter tannins than the '07.)

About This Producer


Since 1998 Carter Cellars has been producing small, intimate vintages with outstanding fruit from Napa's finest vineyard sources. Mark Carter's dream of creating a world class wine label without a brick and mortar winery lead him to a partnership with Nils Venge and no small amount of critical praise. Carter Cellars produces several Cabernets and Merlots, all from fruit grown in low-yield vineyards in Napa and showcasing Beckstoffer fruit from the famous original To-Kalon Vineyard. In 2006 they founded Envy Winery to produce estate-grown wines for the first time.
